Journées du Terroir in Sarlat:

Two 100% gourmet days

On the Thursday and Friday of Ascension weekend, come to Sarlat to meet the local farmers ! To find them, just stroll through the streets of the medieval town centre. And bring a large basket! Milk, honey, wine, sausages, mushrooms, jams and chestnuts of the Périgord and even caviar from Neuvic… This is one of the major gourmet gatherings of the year !

Along the way, the stands invite you to taste and purchase local products such as strawberries, walnuts and – lest we forget – delicious foie gras of Sarlat (, prepared with duck or goose of the Périgord. Stop over at the craft beer stand and don’t miss a taste of Périgord truffles or local cheese!


Discover local flavours

and free activities

Here, the local experts share all their secrets and knowledge! From hunting truffles to gathering strawberries of the Périgord , not to mention carving demonstrations of goose and duck, this is also an opportunity to see how walnut oil is pressed!

On Rue Tourny, the living farm is always a favourite attraction, featuring cows, donkeys, horses, sheep and many other farm animals of the region. Kids will also love the make-up, colouring and walnut shell painting workshops, and they’ll have a lovely little souvenir to take home!
