    This is an strategic shopping center right on road D775 coming out of Redon in ille et Vilaine dept 35 of Brittany and just going over Saint Nicolas de Redon in Loire Atlantique dept 44 in Pays de la Loire!

    Load up filled up and go on the road again. Plenty of stores from the groceries and sundries Leclerc to the home deco accessories La Foir Fouille to even a Decathlon and gas station inexpensive.

    So if you need to load on food for the road, hotel apt etc this is as good as it gest in one stop shopping. For gasoline.petrol it has one of the lowest prices anywhere, and plenty of free parking on and off the road D775 from Redon direction Le Gacilly.

    Les Halles: les Halles,market at la Roche sur Yon

    by gwened Written Dec 28, 2014

    This is the main shopping market of the city and it is big, just around the corner from the Cathedral and the place Napoléon.

    the history I like as told tell us of four buildings here. The new town plan adopted in January 1805 indicates the location of new halls. Located to the South of the Cathedral of Saint Louis, built in wood and brick, the building of the Hall includes three rooms. It is around this place, of which the construction was completed in 1811, that animates the life of the neighbourhood. In 1884 a fire ravaged the buildings. It was rebuilt in the choice of modernity. The halls of 1887, built by Michelin, recalling the Parisian halles by Victor Baltard and Felix Caillet. The building over the years deteriotated and the building needed to be demolished and rebuilt again in 1976 with a modern business complex. By 2000, taking into account new needs, expectations of traders and consumers and it was therefore decided to totally renovate this essential commercial space for the city. New halls, very contemporary architecture, are therefore designed.

    In the Halles, about 80 merchants and producers welcomed you Tuesdays to Saturdays from 7h to 13h.

    You, also have other markets in town such as
    la Garenne, wednesdays and saturday mornings at Place des Victoires
    Aux Jaulnières ,Sunday mornings at Place Viollet-le-Duc
    At Bourg-sous-La Roche, place de la Mutualité, Sunday mornings from 8h to 13h30

    and the monthly Fairs that takes place on the second Monday of each month from 8 h to 17 h. At the place Napoleon stands in the area of les halles.The fair brings together up to 200 exhibitors and offers a wide range of fabrics, jewelry, clothing, shoes, small tools, perfumes, Cd,DVD and regional / local handicrafts products.

    What to buy: almost anything imaginable from wares to deco to food, you should go as we did for the goat cheeses very famous here from this region

    What to pay: good prices you buy direct from Producer and the best quality

    Les Douceurs du Terroir: The place to go for "real" Fontevraud macarons

    by Jefie Updated Jul 30, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So we had to ask, what exactly are "real" Fontevraud macarons, and how are they different from other macarons? A little chat with the friendly owner of Les Douceurs du Terroir soon enlightened us and we discovered that the French are pretty much as serious about these little pastries as, say, Chicagoans are about pizza. So what makes the ones in Fontevraud real is that they're made according to the traditional recipe dating back to the 16th century, using only natural ingredients and adding no preservatives. The two almond meringue discs filled with a layer of buttercream come in different flavours, and I got to taste (and bring home) the two flavours of the day: bergamot and rose water. Both were absolutely delicious!

    What to buy: Macarons, of course, but they also sell homemade cookies and jam.

    Biscuiterie de Chambord: A good place to buy yummy souvenirs!

    by Jefie Updated Jul 7, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was one of the stops suggested on our cycling itinerary. Since it's only a short detour from Chambord Castle to the little village of Maslives (about 5 min by car, maybe 15 min by bike), we decided to check it out. In operation for more than 30 years, la Biscuiterie de Chambord follows traditional cookie recipes to produce delicious "sablé"-style biscuits in more flavours than I can remember. The very cool thing about stopping at the Biscuiterie is that you can sample all of the biscuits, which may or may not help you decide which ones to buy since they're all so good!

    What to buy: I bought a box of pear and chocolate sablés and a box of the caramel crunch ones. Unfortunately, I didn't get to bring any back home - they were all gone before the end of the trip!

    What to pay: I paid 3.70 Euros each for the little bags that contained about 10 cookies.

    So hard to resist sampling them all! La Biscuiterie de Chambord in Maslives, France

    Maison Veuve Amiot: Sparkling Wine Closure

    by pedroswift Updated Dec 18, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Did the half hour tour of the winery at Veuve Amiot followed by a tasting of four sparkling wines. Great value at zero euro. Gratis. Free.

    What to buy: Wine , of course....but wait - there's more!
    We purchased champagne flutes etched with the Veuve Amiot brand.

    Most useful item purchased was a sparkling wine bottle sealer which has given great service since it was procured. It works remarkably well and keeps a half consumed bottle in the fridge overnight without it losing any of its fizz. The stopper goes with me where ever I travel.

    So good is this little device, I'm planning to visit Maison Amiot on my next trip to France just to buy a couple more.
    Done Re-visited Maison Amiot in June 2012. We now own three of these very useful sparkling wine bottle closures. My favourite travel souvenir gets used at least once a week at home. One is kept in the car just in case the need arises to move a half consumed bottle from restaurant to home.

    wine sou-VIN-eer sealer keeps in the fizzzz!

    Markets: Browsing in the Loire Valley

    by ATLC Updated Aug 24, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting a market in France is a great pleasure. Especially if it concerns food. Local cheeses, vegetables, livestock, dried sausages and often also ready-to-eat meals.

    The link below gives an overview of market days in the Loire valley.

    What to buy: You're lucky if you are renting a self-supporting accommodation, so that you can take all that lovely food home and cook it, or eat it.
    If you're in a hotel, then you'll have to resort to picnics. Don't forget your pocket knife!

    My photos of the Saturday market in Saumur have not concentrated on any particular product. However, I saw plenty of food stalls, as well as many other items.

    What to pay: Not necessarily cheap. Some local cheeses could be as expensive as 50 euro per kilo!
