Southwestern France is famed for its food and wine: there are regional speciality foods that must be tried at least once while you are here and many markets where you can buy fresh produce brought straight from the farm, as well as vineyards offering tours of the estate and the chance to taste and buy their wines. Organic produce is strongly represented in shops and restaurants everywhere and there are some markets that only offer organic goods.
