in summer dont miss the village markets, especially the market of Lorgues every Tuesday : fresh vegetables and fruit, local cheese, olive oil, lavender essential oils.
In Autum, mushrooms to be eaten (rather expensive however) : better go for a walk in the woods and collect them if you are experienced in mushrooms !
In Winter, the truffle market : just for your eyes ! unaffordable mushroom !
What to drink : all around Lorgues you will find vineyards and wine cellars for testing the Cote de Provence or Rosé de Provence: The Chateau Sainte Roseline is very nice to visit, there is a chapel and gardens and a nice place for testing the wines.
I recommend to visit the Abbaye of Thoronet with a church, a cloitre and a garden full of provençal herbs. You can also experience a concert in the church to be reserved in advance.
Not to miss, of course, the wonderful and great Canyon of Verdon, 30 km away from Lorgues, the biggest and deepest Canyon in Europe : you can do hiking, rafting, canoeing in some parts of the Canyon but dont forget water, sunhat, and beware of some impossible and dangerous parts of the river (get information before leaving for a walk along the river)
between Caramy and Carcès there is a nice lake inhabited by immigrant birds, especially in Autumn and Winter. This lake should be experienced outside of summer season. I know a place where you could stay a long time painting the landscape.

- Cons:need a swimming pool to refresh in summer !
- In a nutshell:very diversified forest and mountain provençal region with affordable extra good food and wines
a small hotel restaurant in Villecroze (15 km away from Lorgues), very neatly decorated in typical provençal style, the... more travel advice
