The Carpentras truffle market takes place every Friday morning from November to March, and celebrates all things truffle.
When the outlying countryside takes on its winter colours, the 'black diamond' is worth its weight in gold. Lovingly harvested on the slopes of Mont Ventoux, the “tuber melanosporum” is traded on Friday mornings in Carpentras, with buyers coming from far and wide.
Weighed on hand-held hanging beam scales, discreetly wrapped and bagged, the truffle makes its way from grower to gourmet client.
From 08:00 until 12:00 at the Tourist Office for individual buyers and 09:00 for professional sellers at the Hotel-Dieu.
