The next day we packed up camp and headed to the Sarlat market for the third time. We were quite excited for Mom and James to see the market since neither of them had been before and they both enjoy them. We were amazed as we drove through town to see how many more vendors were there as opposed to when we had visited in March. We found a spot to park with the other camper vans and tour buses as the height wasn’t posted on the car lot. Then we set off to see the food portion of the market together; once we knew what Mom and James wanted to pick up we split up so Anoop and I could do the shopping while they started off with the other portion of the market.
We met back up at our appointed meeting time and headed over to the restaurant where Anoop and I had enjoyed such a tasty lunch last time. We all ordered a different menu since there was quite a bit of choice. Anoop, Mom and James all had variations around foie gras, cured duck breast, rillettes and a salad while I just stuck to the salad. For the main course everyone had the duck confit with a mushroom sauce and potatoes sarladaises. I went for something completely different and got mushroom ravioli which was just delicious.
The food portion of the market had been packed up so we had better views of the buildings without all the people in front of them. We showed Mom and James some of the buildings that we had seen on our walking tour in March before we split up again for one last look in the market. We headed back to the car with lots of bags, glad that we had been able to visit the market one more time. We then continued on our way to St. Cirq Lapopie and enjoyed the scenic drive along the river with the overhanging cliffs.
