The potters market

Among all the things people can see during this event, the most striking features are the colours and curves of pots and vases, the delicacy of jewels and the beauty of statues.

It’s no surprise that Sallèles-d’Aude, already a potter village during the Gallo-Roman era over 2,000 years ago, decided to organize a market for pottery fans. It has been taking place every year on August, 14th or 15th for the past 25 years.

Place de la République, under ancient plane trees, around 40 potters are gathered to present a wide variety of works.

The high quality of the products explains why more and more people come back year after year in order to find items both creative and unique.
