The Market Train

On Tuesdays from 20th July to 24th August board the market train in Saint-Jean-de-Muzols, or other stations along the line, to shop at the big weekly market in Lamastre.

This diesel train is the ideal way to get to one of the best markets in the county of Ardèche, avoiding the problem of driving along winding roads and parking. Fill your baskets with traditional pork meats, beautifully ripe fruits, chestnuts, picodon goat cheese and other local  produce.

NB: tickets for the Market Train are not valid on board steam trains.
