If tourism means visits for your tastebuds, why not take home a gastronomic souvenir! Whether as a gift or for your own pleasure, it's easy to take home a piece of the Bay of Somme. Then you can remind your stomach of the time spent in this little bit of paradise.
Bay of Somme means local products: so why not leave with some of the products of our region? Cider, rhubarb wine, sea buckthorn, local beers, prairie grazed lamb, samphire: Philippe offers one of the best selections of local products in his grocery Aux Saveurs in the Bay of Le Crotoy:

No question, of course, of going away with products that you haven't tasted while you're here, so if you'd like to cook local products yourself during your holiday, we've selected two addresses for you where you can find excellent regional products:
Look in at Poissonnerie la Maddy! At this high-quality fishmonger's, you'll be welcomed with a smile by a first-class team, and you'll be spoilt for choice with products, depending on the catch.
Poissonnerie la Maddy:
The Boulangerie Fréville in Abbeville will amaze you: it's close to the collégiale Saint Vulfran. 2 must-haves: the traditional baguette served with breakfast at the Domaine and above all the famous "gâteau battu". It's a local speciality served during weddings and other celebrations. You'll be surprised when you taste this smooth, slightly sweet "Picardy brioche" made with egg yolks and flour.
