If you are a market lover, the Friday morning market in Lourmarin is a must! The old town centre is busy with locals and visitors. Market stalls wind around the narrow streets, and boutiques encourage the shopping spirit with their outdoor displays. Cafe Gaby in the heart of town at Place Ormeau is THE place to people watch over a coffee or lunch (book in advance).
When you visit Lourmarin, allow enough time to wander the narrow streets. For a smallish village (albeit one popular with the tourists) it is the Luberon chic equivalent to St Remy de Provence in the Alpilles. Lourmarin has a collection of galleries, which include works by local artists. There are plenty of shops with linens, woodcraft, glassware and French home decor products. Women’s boutiques abound with shoes, hats, jewellery, and designer clothing.
