Market of Louhans

Bresse is well-known for its numerous fairs and markets held all year round. The largest market is held every Monday morning in Louhans-Châteaurenaud, filling the town centre with market-goers and merchants. 
The Grande Rue with its arcades is closed off to traffic during the market, and houses a clothing market. The squares around the church are filled with colors and sound, and it's fun to simply stroll through the stalls in the food market, full of tantalizing aromas. 
Finally, the poultry market on the Champ de Foire attracts onlookers and merchants with its typical atmosphere. Poultry is prominently displayed here, of course featuring la Volaille de Bresse, but you will also find geese, ducks, rabbits and goats depending on the season.
The organic market is in Rue de la Grenette and the local producers are around the Halle, near the poultry market.
Don't leave the market without tasting the special market dish, la Tête de Veau (head of veal) and the Corniottes, a speciality of Louhans.
