Some products



This delicate spice is born from a purple-blue flower from which the deep red of the stigmas stand out. It is by hand picking the stigmas from these flowers and then drying them that this precious spice is obtained. It takes 200,000 flowers to obtain 1 kg of dry saffron. Saffron is grown in autumn and a festival is held every year in its honor in Cajarc! A true treasure of our destination, saffron is the red gold of Quercy !


The Lot remains one of the leading French departments producing truffles with a production of about 3 tons per year. The black Quercy truffle, a noble variety among the noble ones, is collected in winter from December to March on the truffle grounds. This one is mysterious and is picked like a treasure priceless. The formation of the truffle in the soil remains a mystery… Take the time to go to the truffle marketof Capdenac-Le-Haut to taste this delicate mushroom.

I buy local products

To really get to know a region, eat locally and shop at markets or with local producers. You support employment and the local economy while discovering real quality products!

I choose seasonal products

The Grand-Figeac is full of specialties from spring to winter, so let yourself be tempted by the flavors of the moment for more intensity in your tastings!

I prefer bulk

A large shopping bag or a nice basket will be enough to carry your groceries, forget about paper bags that go to the trash, take reusable containers and enjoy having a basket full of colors and flavors!
