Foires Grasses, Brive

This event is a diary date must for the gourmets of south-western France and all lovers of fine produce!

These Foires Grasses fairs are a magnet for all lovers of foie gras and truffles: ducks, capons, geese, foie gras and truffles are all celebrated here in Brive.
It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet the producers, taste their produce, and while you're there, stock up on provisions and finalise your recipes ahead of the Festive Season.

The friendly party atmosphere of these fairs is legendary, and there are awards to be won by the best producers.

The wow factor:
At the foire des rois (the Kings’ Fair dates from 1796), you can have your foies gras canned free of charge and sample a giant galette des rois (puff pastry pie filled with frangipane, traditionally eaten on Twelfth Night).
