Salutations all! I’m starting my first CF next Monday (and I can barely sleep in anticipation), arriving in SJPdP on Sunday via the 3pm train. I’m certain most food shops close early on Sunday, but anyone know of a secret open Mercado? Was hoping to get some basic food to snack on while traversing the Napoleon. I also understand there’s an open market on Mondays, but it doesn’t seem to open until 8am, and I was hoping to be well on my way by then, but maybe some shops open earlier? Any advice from this Council of Sage Pilgrims? ¡Muchísimas gracias!
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

€83,-

There is a Carrefour, but it is only open in the morning on Sundays.
 
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

€149,-
Carrefour near la Gare de Bayonne is open on Sundays from 9 - 21 hrs.
But you won't make that with 15 minutes to spare.
 
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
Saint Jean is a tourist town. Small shops are open on Sundays and you will be able to buy bread, cheese and ham without a doubt. I even had a sandwich made in one of the shops very early in the morning before I headed out of town.
 
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-

That’s what I was hoping to hear! Thanks!
 
The local bakery will be open Sunday and Monday from 6 am to 1 pm.

It is located directly on the main road through that little village. The address is
Ogitegia
38 rue d'Espagne
64220 Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port
Perfection! Thank you! I can swing by in the morning and then start my adventure well-stocked! 🥖
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.

Hello,
Monday morning is market day at SJPDP. Producers set up shop very early in the morning and you'll find all sorts of victuals to sample the products of the Basque Country.
