In the heart of Gers, a by-word for gastronomy and lifestyle, Samatan is the capital of foie gras.
Every Monday morning, Samatan bustles around
its three markets :
The stalls of its street market display their local products, the alleys are crowded with customers seeking fresh products, genuine products.
The specialized covered markets reserved for foie gras and live poultry welcome both professionals and amateur gourmets for a tasteful rendez-vous.
Samatan can boast its Monday morning markets, all year long.
Samatan's reputation as a commercial hub is solidly established. Indeed, Samatan has always pushed its market forward ; over the years it has become one of the most active places in the
South-West. Today, Samatan's Marché au gras ranks first in France and in the world for this area of production (source : Association Gersoise pour la Promotion
