One of the city's main industries, from the Middle Ages well into the 20th century, was vinegar making. You can buy some of the famous Orléans vinegar north of town at Martin Pouret, 236 Faubourg Bannier, Fleury-les-Aubrais (tel. 02-38-88-78-49). The family-owned business dates from 1797. The current M. Pouret is the only person in the region carrying on the slow, traditional vinegar-making method. You can do a wine tasting at one of the region's most comprehensive wine merchants, Cave de Marc & Sébastien, 7 place du Châtelet (tel. 02-38-62-94-11), in the heart of the commercial center, just north of the Loire and west of rue Royale.
