The historic Renaissance town of Sarlat is famous for having the largest market in the Dordogne Valley (Wednesdays and Saturdays). Market day or not, when you explore the heart of Sarlat, apart from being struck by the beauty of its architecture you might also notice the sheer volume of artisanal Foie Gras shops that pepper the city centre. Goose and duck pâté is one of the famous food delicacies of the Dordogne Valley.
Family recipes and age old techniques are handed down from generation to generation in order to create this gourmet speciality. To celebrate the local farmers and producers of Foie Gras, and the geese that make it possible, the Fest’Oie Festival is held every first weekend in March. An unmissable foodie festival in the Dordogne Valley.
