Overview of the local producers of the Pays de Vitré who will be installed at Thursdays in the Summer

To complete its aperitif cones, nothing better than local products!

This year, a new formula is proposed to you:

In all the stands of the participating producers, collect aperitif cones. Add the products according to your own desires (sweet, salty, both) in order to concoct the best possible aperitif yourself!

Little sweets for sweet tooths…

Not to mention the refreshments that are essential in summer!
