Whilst shopping at the fruit and vegetable store you won't be able to resist Charente melons and delicious Ile de Ré potatoes. You'll find more delicious treats to enhance your dishes in the herbs and spices aisle. Few people know that Charente-Maritime was once one of the biggest saffron producers in the world. A dozen producers still grow it today. Last but not least, no trip to Ile de Ré would be complete without picking up a bit of the region's white gold to take home with you.
