Rue Verdun (Verdun Street), Carcassonne
There are various shops and cafes all along the street and there is a weekly food market that takes place on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Shops accessible on the rue Verdun include: Maison Juliette, a bakery and patisserie; La Ferme, "fine grocery store"; and other emporiums for food, wines, flatware and cookery. There is a bountiful amount of retailers, book shops and book stalls, stationeries and souvenir and novelty shops. There are lots of gift shops, cheese shops, art galleries and malls.
All these are in the fortified Cite or the Bastide Saint-Louis (lower town). While the Cite is basically barred to auto traffic, there is driving in the lower town. One may stroll from shop to shop in a neighborhood from the 12th century. Or, one may choose to navigate the busier, crowded streets of the Bastide. It's plentiful and good either way.
