We went to the Jarnac Truffle market last year, I even bought a small one for a couple of Omelettes. Now that we live here, it's only a two minute walk to the building where the truffle hunters sell their shrooms twice a week.
The first market, December 4th, was sold out in 3 minutes.....that gives you an idea how popular it is. Today it took a little longer, but not by much. By the time I got to take some pictures and listen to some conversations, it was all over.
Today's prices ranged from 900.00 to 1300.00 a kilo. Our dog has yet to find a truffle....but then I did not really make her try so hard.
