Strolling through a night market in Normandy

During the summer season, night markets are a real tradition ! It’s an opportunity to go for a walk with your family at the end of the day, among the stalls.

Local crafts, regional products or fancy trinkets, you can find everything !

What holiday souvenir will you choose ?

A stroll through the night markets in summer is a nice way to end a day’s holiday !

Home-made products, decorative objects, funny trinkets, jewellery… and regional gourmet products :

Norman cheeses, cider, desserts made from Normandy apples… fill up on local gifts to take home or to give to friends.

Also take advantage of the long summer evenings to enjoy an ice cream, warm chichis or a crispy waffle, facing the sea.

When do the night markets take place ?

Monday evenings from July 8 to August 26, 6-10pm – Rue de la Mer

In this pretty seaside resort on the Côte de Nacre, the night market is accompanied by either a concert or an open-air film screening in the Town Hall Park (parc de l’hôtel de ville).

At the end of your tour of the stalls, let yourself be tempted by a tasting of Gui-Gui, a sweet speciality of the Côte de Nacre, wrapped around a stick, to be enjoyed facing the sea !

A meeting with the whale

“If you are in Luc-sur-Mer on a Monday evening, after your stroll through the night market, go to the Hôtel de Ville park, otherwise known as the Parc de la Baleine.

There you will discover the huge skeleton of a whale that washed up on the beach in 1885!

Children will love the playground and the farm animals.

And to end the evening on a high note, why not pop over to watch the sunset from the restaurant rooftopse restaurants’s rooftop.
