Eating local products in Southwest France from markets or shops

My spouse and I will be travelling through Southwest France mid to late November. We won't be eating from restaurants--instead I hope you will help us find local foods and produce. We are looking for fine bakeries, fromageries, charcuteries, and the occasional supermarket. Whenever possible (given the complications of our itinerary) we will visit the market in the town we're in. Perhaps not a great time for seasonal produce.....

We will be visiting Albi, Rodez, Conques, Rocamadour, Brive-la-Gaillarde (briefly), Soulliac, Périgueux, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil, Cahors, Moissac and Toulouse.

I know, for example, that Rocamadour has it's own goat cheese. But where is a good place to buy it? We will not be able to cook anything, but we'll eagerly try anything ready to eat.
