On every first Sunday of August Isle sur la Sorgue is full of joy, colour, scents, noise, and local products. The traditional flat-bottomed "Nego-Chin" boats used for fishing in the past today are used for the annual floating market. The farmers dress up in traditional costumes, decorate their boats with flowers and then float around the Venice of Provence singing the famous "Coupo Santo" and selling fruits, vegetables, wine, cheese, bread, bouquets of flowers, or olives. Visit the vibrant floating market and fill your basket while enjoying the lively atmosphere.
