In Lorient, the Bois-du-Château organic market switches to summer time

The Gaec du Champ des Tours market garden micro-farm has changed its on-site sales schedule, from Wednesday May 1st until next October. Located in the Bois-du-Château park in Lorient, the five greenhouses of this micro-farm are part of an eco-citizen collective. “Our goal,” explains Nina Velegant, who has managed the site with Jérémy Jeannin since 2021, “is to bring nature and the city closer together and to launch a new economic dynamic in a neighborhood often with little awareness of responsible culture.”

Customers are busy at the micro-farm.

Two formulas

There are two options for this: a basket sale for the 70 members (70% subsidized by the CCAS) on Wednesday and Friday from 4:30 p.m., and an on-site retail sale for all, the frequency of which is now modified; it now takes place every Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and no longer just the first Wednesday of the month.

A tour of the greenhouses

The stalls offer a wide range of organic vegetables at very reasonable prices and recently a new feature: a partnership with Freddy Le Breton, who manufactures his products in Colpo and sells his natural wines and fermented drinks on site, notably Kombucha, a tea. fermented which he brings up to date after its 2,000 years of existence and which he makes people taste.

Also note that on May 26, a visit to the farm’s greenhouses will be possible from 10 a.m. as part of La Grande Tablée, organized at the Bois du Château park by the Ti-Barouf association.


Sale on Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the GAEC du Champ des Tours, rue Gabriel Fauré in Lorient. Email contact: [email protected]
