Would you like to eat local produce? The local pick-your-own farms and market gardeners ensure that their produce is of the highest quality and taste, with vegetables and fruit of incomparable flavour and nutritional value. Come along and see for yourself. You’re in for a treat!

La Cueillette d’Aulnay

The cueillette d’Aulnay sur Marne is situated 13 kilometres from Châlons-en-Champagne, in the centre of the Reims-Epernay-Châlons triangle.

Here, Amaury and his team grow vegetables, fruit and flowers of all kinds. Their aim? To give you the real taste of freshly picked, ripe produce, at the right price, directly “from the producer to the consumer”.

From mid-April to mid-November, nearly 40 species of fruit and vegetables are selected for their quality of flavour and are produced using sustainable farming methods.

At the entrance to the picking area, take a basket, a pair of secateurs and even a wheelbarrow and set off to explore the fields and orchards.

Our Market Gardeners

There are plenty of local market gardeners in Saint-Memmie, a land steeped in market gardening tradition.

“The origins of market gardening in Saint-Memmie date back to the 17th century when each inhabitant had a garden for individual use or for growing hemp. This sector gradually developed and became really prosperous in the 19th century.”
