Louhans and its Monday morning market
The 400-metre-long Grand’ Rue de Louhans is lined with 15th-century houses and 157 arcades. Although it alone justifies a visit to this small town in the heart of Bresse Bourguignonne, it is on Monday mornings that you should visit Louhans. Every Monday morning, one of the largest markets in France is held there. This market, whose origins date back to the 13th century, specialises in poultry. It must be said that you are here in Bresse and that the Bresse poultry is the only poultry to benefit from an AOC! This justifies a market!
