In most villages and towns, you apply to the Mairie for a stand at the local market. There is often a long waiting list, and there are possibilities to have a regular place or a one off stand, depending on what you would like. In order to sell at markets, you must have a 'carte de commerçant ambulant' which you get from the Préfecture and for this you must be registered at the 'registre du commerce et des sociétés' or at the 'repertoire de metiers'. Of course there are markets that happen where paperwork is not always demanded, but if you are not legal and you are found out the consequences are heavy fines as with any non-declared work. I would ask around at the markets when you get here, go to the local Préfecture and ask for any information.
