    Leroy Merlin -Theix: get all for the home at leroy

    by gwened Written Jan 11, 2014

    This is a chain, bit upscale then most of its genre but a lot more selection. WE love it, and come here often to buy everything for the house.

    it is in the main road passing by Brittany the N165 Brest to Nantes. and easy to get off and on. if you are renting and need repairs, or garden ,barbecue accessories this is it. In summer months they bring beach gears out and accessories too.

    a place to mingle with the locals, something different, that is why the tip

    What to buy: all for the home, paneling, lamps were todays's visit that prompted the making of this tip .

    What to pay: prices can be good or higher than elsewhere but for us the quality and choice counts.

    Very typical Breton store chain for cookies,biscuits, canned fish products, decorations,gift ideas, and a nice souvenir from Brittany

    Stores all over the region, and they are my favorite stops for searching for unique deco and food goodies of the area.

    I have been to several but the biggest and most stocked is the one at St Philibert , on the way to Locmariaquer on the road D28 from the expressway N165 direction Crac'h/Locmariaquer. Once at traffic circle take a quick right as if going to the intermarche supermarket but then take a quick left to the factory and store La Trinitaine.

    What to buy: deco items, mugs, table settings, pots, fish canning, biscuites, madeleines, all traditional area items

    What to pay: to be found only in Brittany, the prices are in line with any gift souvenir you can think. Good prices and factory outlet.

    Les Halles -Le Faouêt: Market days and fleas at Le Faouêt

    by gwened Written Jun 16, 2013

    Have it shopping because it is but it can be in things to do as well, its a must while in town. fleas or food market days is superb. Here is the history;

    The major attraction here is the covered market hall, Les Halles, old halls of 1542 welcoming the market 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. As in all the cities that had, the halles belonged to the local Lord. He held the right to establish a market and to build a Hall to House it. Le Faouët, it was mainly fairs to cows and horses. In the 16th century, there were 9 fairs and a market was held every Wednesday. In the 17th century, it is the site of up to 14 annual fairs. Today, the market is held every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. Built as early as 1542, the building has undergone many restorations in the 19th and 20th centuries. Rectangular in shape, the halles cover an area of 940 m2. Their 53 meters by 19 meters dimensions are impressive. Despite such a surface, they prove too small time compared to the affluence of some days of fair. The building consists of a large relaxing roof on a row of short columns of granite brought by a wall of stones. The elegance of these columns surprised; halls, commercial buildings, were generally devoid of any ornament. In the middle of the roof stands an octagonal Bell Tower topped with a 8-sided crown. Access is via two lateral entrances covered with a roof to rump (indoor elongated end of a roof at one or more triangular sections) and two axial entries covered a roof supported by two columns. The construction of the frame is wood of oak and fir. The day we were there it was a brocante or flea market on Saturdays going on,lovely.

    The tourist site for the Pays du roi morvan area ,at Le Faouêt; http://www.tourismepaysroimorvan.com/accueil/navigation/le-pays/le-faouet.aspx

    What to buy: food and veggies first and second wednesday of the month, then brocante or fleas on saturdays.

    What to pay: best produce best quality price ratio always

    Marché les vendredi, friday market day: Market days at Plouharnel

    by gwened Written Aug 24, 2012

    This is a nice market in another Breton town, as in France there is one in every town it seems. They are marvelous because for the most part you get to see the produce of the farmer, the real one, the ones you come over here for ,and the prices are better; quality=price ratio is great

    I past by here often on way to the beaches from my home and can always pick a fresh produce on my way. This morning I finally took some photos arriving in it, so decided to let it be known.

    You need a car of course, but is a nice stop between Auray/Vannes area and the beaches of Carnac, Quiberon, and La Trinité sur Mer. Its only open in the months of summer here July and August.
    The city webpage has info on the other markets in the area ,in French.

    What to buy: produce , vegetables and fruits

    What to pay: good prices from farmers
