Covered market: a concentrate of Charentes!

Châtelaillon and the covered market, it is a love story that does not date from yesterday! We must go back to the 1930s to witness the creation of this local institution. Since then, generations of producers and shopkeepers have animated it with passion. And it shows! Cheesemonger, delicatessen, butcher, oyster farmer or fishmonger, discover their treasures and concoct your Charentais meal.

We love talking to them, discussing the rain and the weather, but especially getting their precious advice! Choice of ingredients, cooking and accompaniments, the shopkeepers of the covered market inspire you and guide you in your choices. Discover them! Good mood and conviviality guaranteed.

Words from the shopkeepers!

The covered market is a small family! Everyone knows each other here, it creates a real atmosphere, authentic and friendly

What do Chatelaillon and Italy have in common? The love of simplicity!
