The Boucholeurs organic market: the HQ of fine gourmets!

My first is gorged with the Charente sun. My second is good for your health. And my third is a village that smells authentic. My all is a step impossible to circumvent of the vacations in Chatelaillon. Answer: the Boucholeurs organic market! Hours, location and local producers, discover the HQ of fine gourmets.

When does it happen?

The Boucholeurs Market is held every Sunday morning from June through September, from 8am to 2pm. Once the baskets are filled, we can quietly get behind the stove!

Where does it happen?

Go to the pretty Boucholeurs village on the André Hesse square to find all the producers’ stands.

Boucholeurs? It comes from “bouchot”, these typical shellfish parks that are at the heart of Charente oyster farming. It is it that made the fame of this former fishing village and that gives it today its unique charm.
It is very easily reached by bike from downtown Chatelaillon by way of the sea.

Why is it great?

First for the setting, but also for the specificity of the market: organic! It is the guarantee of local and natural products, grown in the respect of the environment and traditions. The love of the earth, there is only that of true! Organic food is great for children because it educates their palate from a very young age. But it’s also important for parents who rediscover the pleasure of eating well with every bite.

Who do we meet there? Only beautiful people!

  • Wilfried, proud of his 100% Charentais melons. Beware, the appellation “Charentais” is not always true. With us, it is!”
