You are missing the point of being in Bordeaux if you skip this fabulous farmer's market on the Quai des Chartrons on Sunday. (And I don't care if you've paid for lunch on your ship. Geez.) Colorful, delicious and huge--hundreds of cheeses, pastries, and prepared foods for casual consumption; vast amounts of fish, meat, veg and fruit for those shopping... More

Agreed, some of the stalls here are purely there for the tourist... A tiny goat's cheese for 8 € is clearly overpriced, but tasting oysters with wine & bread for 6 or 8 € is a steal ! This market is preferably to be enjoyed on a sunny day ! It is smaller than I expected but can replace breakfast... More

Fabulous fresh fish, fruit veg, meet etc. A real pleasure to shop here. Stall holders were all very friendly and helpful. Loved the fact that we were staying in an apartment so we could buy a range of produce to cook and eat.

There was a reasonable choice of vegetables, fruit, cheeses. Too much meat (ok I was warned!I. I liked the organic vegetables. The market was smaller than I expected, but overall a nice (short) experience.

Unfortunately we were not there on a Sunday. There were some "outlet " shops and restaurants but there is no big draw unless it's a Sunday. It's a nice stroll but we were disappointed that there wasn't much to see.

All sorts of food and beverage places line the waterside on Sunday afternoon. At the end, there is an oyster place which you can miss because of the long line. Certainly worth the not too long wait for delicious, fresh oysters.

The Quai des Marques and the Marche des Quais are next to each other on the banks of the Garonne and together made a very enjoyable experience on a sunny Sunday morning in mid-March. The Quai des Marques is a factory outlet shopping complex housed in 4 of the old port warehouses with shops that offer the usual range of... More

Even if you are flying back home on Sunday and have a pre-paid breakfast in your hotel, you MUST find 30 minutes to visit this local market opened each Sunday. Here you will taste outstanding oysters with white Gascogne Sauvignon Blanc! Not a fan of oysters? Cheese, meat, macarons, seafood, foie gras, exquisite pastries etc. can be bought here from...

Great place to have Sunday brunch! The market offers various types of cooked food, bakeries and produce stands. We got some very nice fruit and delicious jams. Be there early to avoid crowds and because soms stands pack up at 1PM. Lot of places have seating and most have tents so even a little rain doesn't spoil the fun. You... More
