The truffle market of Richerenches, the biggest in Europe, starts in the middle of November to end in the middle of March. Every Saturday morning, truffle growers come to sell their harvest to the brokers.
Truffles are an object of veneration (with their own confraternity and a special mass in January!), ‘hunted down’ (‘caver’ in French) in fields and woods with truffle growers (trufficulteurs), admired and exchanged in dedicated markets and trade fairs and welcomed in the greatest Chefs’ kitchens… They can be savoured with fine wine among family or friends, at home or in fine restaurants. Indeed truffles are all about taste and conviviality!
