Vergt – The Capital of the Perigord Strawberry

Situated between Périgueux and Bergerac, in the heart of the strawberry growing area, Vergt is a lovely little bastide built by the French in the 13th century. Well-known as the heart of the local strawberry industry, Vergt houses the “Grand Marché du Cadran”, where most locally grown strawberries transit for national and international markets. In May they hold La Fête de la Fraise – the Strawberry Festival.
