Marché aux Truffes d'été CARPENTRAS

Friday mornings, 16th November 2018 to end March

When the outlying countryside takes on its winter colours, the black diamond becomes 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. In an elaborate ceremony, the truffles are weighed on hand-held scales and carefully wrapped, money is discretely exchanged and produce handed over from grower to gourmet customer.
