Outdoor Markets

Shopping at outdoor markets is very popular among locals, and is a lively and picturesque affair. You could have a look at the Flea Market, held every Sunday on Avenue Palais des Exposition; the Art Market, every first Saturday on Allées Maillol; the Brocant Market, every Saturday at the same place or, finally, the bio market Marché République that takes place from Tuesday to Sunday at Place de la République.


Perpignan is the largest Catalan city (after Barcelona and Lleida) and is situated just outside of Spain. Consequently, the indigenous style of Catalan is greatly reflected in both textiles and pottery, which are among the most popular items for travellers to buy. For fresh produce, visit some of the local markets, and explore the fragrant and flavorful regional wines.
