There are several shops, and, of course, the busy market place. It really is very busy on market days, so be careful where you walk (and what you buy of course). Beside the tourist office and the ticket office for Lascaux's Cave II there is an exhibition area selling local goods and produce and along near the main car park is another building that specialises in selling goods from South American, African and Asians countries.


Several restaurants are existent around the town, with good French food.
