Burgundy shopping

Shopping in Burgundy can be a delicious endeavor: With about 4,000 wineries and a dozen distilleries, wine and liqueur are Burgundy's specialties. But the region also produces fabulous chocolate, mustard, gingerbread, honey, cheeses (particularly Époisses and chèvre), and the famous aniseed candies of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain.

Once you've had your fill of edible souvenirs, seek out the region's many artists and artisans. Burgundy is home to a talented population of potters and ceramists who create both traditional housewares (as do Florence Gonin and Wulf Rohland of Poterie de Bruant) and original artwork (Catherine Vanier). The region also is home to one of the world's great glassmaking teams, Annette Meech and Christopher Williams of Glasshouse de Sivignon.

If the region's many historical sites inspire you to redecorate, you'll find plenty of French country antiques, vintage books, and objets d'art. Many villages, and most towns and cities, host lively outdoor markets at least once a week, plus occasional flea markets, where you can buy everything from clothing and kitchen items to grandfather clocks, local foods, wine, and artwork.
