Le marché de Brive

The Brive truffle market

Black diamonds !

The regulated truffle market sales are held every Saturday from December to February in Brive-la-Gaillarde Market.

Experience the distinctive atmosphere of this unique market, which throughout the season plays host to one of the most famous specialities of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region: the truffle!

Every year, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine departments of Dordogne, Gironde and Lot-et-Garonne produce between 8 and 9 tonnes of truffles out of the (approximately) 35 tonnes produced in France. So why are they called black diamonds? Primarily as a result of their rarity, and therefore their high price! Truffles sell at between €650 and €700 per kilo (across all categories).
Their delicious flavour comes at a price!

The emphasis is very much on freshness, terroir and authenticity.
Come here to gather some great recipe ideas (truffle omelette, truffle risotto, etc.) and feast on the delicious black diamond.

Our advice: get there early to avoid missing the best!
