Vernègues (French pronunciation: ​[vɛʁnɛg]; Occitan: Lo Vernegue) is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône département in southern France.

The commune is made up of two villages: Vernègues and Cazan.

On 11 June 1909 an earthquake killed two villagers and destroyed the castle in Vernègues and most of the houses. The village was later rebuilt at a lower altitude.
