Carpentras : Michelin's recommendations
A pleasant town, very lively when the avenues and squares are filled with market stalls (the Friday market has been awarded the "exceptional market" label), particularly when invaded by the rabassiers (truffle producers) between late November and March. Confectioners are also present, selling the traditional "berlingots", a boiled sweet invented in 1844 by one of their predecessors.
