An off-the-wall query for you local experts....

Do you know how I might meet a local beekeeper and buy local honey?

I'm a beekeeper at home and I love meeting up with beeks from other parts of the world and sampling their honey.

Has anyone got any leads on L'Isle (or adjacent) beekeepers?

And many thanks, again, to all of you. Your help has really helped pull the planning together.

Easy one. Go to the morning market in L'Isle sur la Sorgue (it's huge). There are several vendors there that that sell their own honey.

Every large market in the area have vendors who sell their honey.

Good input from datthecoast...

There's a family near Bonnieux who have a honey shop on the main street of the village, Entre Miel et Terre. tourisme-en-luberon.com/tourisme2/index.php… They sell all types of their honey and products made from honey... really nice people too. They sell at the market in Bonnieux on Fridays as well.

Another member of the Agnel family has a farm near Gordes and they also sell at markets. You could visit the farm as well. If you take the back road out of the Abbaye de Senanque, toward Murs, you'll come to a point where the road ends and you must turn right or left (left to Murs, right back to Gordes)... the farm is right there. guidegastronomique.ch/produits/…

Early in our 2011 holiday in France, we went to the market in Malaucène and bought a jar of lavender honey that lasted us for our 6 weeks in France. This was the display of honeys and jams: nickbooth.id.au/Europe11/…marketjam.jpg

You will find stands like this at any market in France.
