The Markets in Vendée

Automatic translation

The weekly markets are a perfect place to start your vacation, stock up on local products, take the pulse of the atmosphere and sit down for a little coffee with a tourist map, to make the vacation program!

Here is the list of Vendée markets with the days and places of their holding. Markets are held in the morning, unless otherwise specified. Those that take place in season are specified and we recommend that you call the Tourist Office concerned to have the exact date of the start of the market, because sometimes it is in May, sometimes in June!
This list is intended to be as exhaustive as possible, if you notice that we have forgotten one, do not hesitate to sign it for us so that we can correct the list! contact@guide-de-la-vendee.com

We have chosen to classify the markets by day, but if you prefer to search by location, do a search on the page (apple or CTRL + F) and type in the name of the village or town that interests you.


You can look at our page on local Vendée products, or the one that will explain the typical dishes and recipes not to be missed during the holidays!
