It was a gorgeous, warm, sunny day in Cotignac and the tourists seemed to come out of the woodwork. The market was bustling and there were so many buying temptations from the roasted chickens to big bunches of lavender.

Cotignac Market

Every Tuesday and all year ’round Cotignac comes alive with the hustle and bustle of its outdoor market.
