The markets of the island of Oleron

Enjoy your vacations in camping on the Ile d’Oléron to do the market!

The Oleronian markets and their unique atmosphere

The traditional markets are animating all the villages of the island during the year, especially in summer. During the months of July and August, the stalls of producers meet every morning to offer you fresh seafood and make you discover the specialties of the Oleronese soil. The biggest market of the island is without any doubt the one of Château d’Oléron : it gives you an appointment around the covered markets, in the heart of the historical center. The sixty or so exhibitors indoors mixes the flavors of the sea, fresh fruit and vegetables, rotisseries, warm bread and pineau des Charentes. Outdoors, two hundred more colorful stalls reserve you a pleasant morning of shopping and strolling. During the day or in the evening, don’t miss any of the island’s markets during your stay at the Sables Vignier campsite : each one has its own unique ambiance and atmosphere!
