This is by far my favorite market in provence! It is on Wednesday mornings in St. Remy. It's about 45 minutes away in light traffic but well worth the drive. Go early, there's a lot to see here. The best food booths are in the town center. Stay for lunch at one of the amazing restaurants or have a picnic in the park with your kids!
