Prayssas is a commune in the Lot-et-Garonne department in south-western France. On Wednesday nights from June to September, there is a night market called "les marchées nocturne" selling local produce. There is a Sunday morning market all year round. Towards the end of August, there is "La feria des fruits" the fruit festival which consists of celebrating the end of summer and the fruit harvest and drinking. A tradition is to wear a red bandana and a white T-shirt or a yellow bandana and a red T-shirt. Prayssas and the surrounding area has a significant British population.
