Contributor blog post by Nutmeg:
Most people (read tourists) go to l’Isle sur la Sorgue for one of two reasons:
- The Sunday market – one of the largest in the region

Very few would go because they were expecting Venice in Provence.
Ginger and Nutmeg had only visited for the Sunday market. Despite the fact that this market originated in 1596, it was not their favourite trip!

Visit l’Isle sur la Sorgue on a quiet day to experience the non-frenzied side of this town with a lazy river running through the middle. Enjoy a lazy lunch at anyone of the cafés along the water’s edge.
