The market life is important from the 20C on and still goes on the main one at place Saint Michel, it goes on every Friday from 8H to 16H.

What to buy: food and goodies from the region
What to pay: best prices always and fresher
For a small town with so much history there are fewer than usual purely Tourist shops.
In the historic centre between the food market and the shops almost all every day needs can be bought including a few luxuries.
Chocolates and patisserie were plentiful !
As usual window displays are works of art.
I saw few clothes shops in the Centre these were on the main road opposite the carparks and up the hill in the higher quarter.
