Sundays are market day in pretty Saint Cyprien, a picturesque town nestled on the hillside that slopes down to the Dordogne valley. The market stretches along the high street from the Mairie to just below the imposing ‘Eglise Abbatiale’ or Abbey-style church.

Unfortunately the day was a little rainy when we visited (as can be seen from the photo!) but there were still plenty of stalls of interest. Surprisingly there were a good selection of seafood stalls selling oysters and mussels as well as vendors selling traditional Périgordine fare.

St Cyprien is on the main route between Sarlat and Bergerac and is about a 30 minute drive from La Blanquette.
