Concarneau Shopping Tips by ranger49
Concarneau Shopping: 6 reviews and 16 photos
There are plenty of shopping opportunities in this small area - even on a day when most of the shops were closed!
Traditional Regional Products are plentiful and include some of the most famous and long established family firms in the area.
If you have packed the wrong clothing you could put that right here very quickly whether for an unexpected cold snap or an invitation to a very smart restaurant.
We saw some beautiful clothes for children and were tempted by a jacket for a 6 year old grandchild - only the price tag put us off. Clothes in France are generally expensive .
Casual outdoor clothing including nautical wear, is available for all ages .
All shops pictured are in Rue de Vauban or Place Saint Guénolé
Maison Lanicol - Biscuits, chocolates and traditional Breton pastries. You walk in, take a bag and make your selection which is then weighed and priced. We go can’t resist the tiny individual Kouign Amaann sweet and sticky little cakes. ( 0.166kg = 4 euros 15, for 4 )
Conserverie Courtin - established 1893 the oldest cannery in the town. All kinds of canned fish, soups and sauces and prepared meals. Speciality is their famous dish of scallops cooked in butter and wine and preserved in large earthenware pots.. Guided tours can be taken at the cannery on the harbour side at e quai du Moros.
Biscuiterie de Concararneau - buttery biscuits are a real Breton speciality. Light and delicious and often sold in very attractive tin containers.
This, that and everything - souvenirs and useful or not so useful things!5c*
A daily market is held every morning in the large Market Hall- Halle, seen at back right in the picture. AS well as the usual produce stalls there are a number stalls selling snack foods.
In the open space in front of the Market Hall there is a big market on Friday mornings.
We arrived on a Monday morning and had a quick walk round the much smaller market held on that day which was already beginning to clear away and was not particularly interesting. Friends tell me the Friday morning market is by far the best. The location is lovely with a tree-lined road running along the waterfront and the Ville Clos as a backdrop.
