While Bergerac has lots of little speciality shops where locals and tourists alike can find designer fashions, china, glassware, jewellery and perfumes, the city revolves around its food and wines. At almost every turn, and on most days of the week, Bergerac hosts markets that are not so much a place to purchase the freshest of food or antiques but a social event at which to catch up with friends. The food markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays to around midday in the Notre-Dame church and Sainte-Catherine area, and the covered market close-by. Fresh fruit and vegetables along with cheeses, truffles and meats, vinaigrettes, herbs and, of course, local wine can all be purchased. There are also summer markets, candlelit evening markets and flea markets. The Place Gambetta hosts a general market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
