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

Great for grazing with an ever growing selection of ready cooked foods to eat there or take home. Situated along the river in the centre of Bordeaux and a pleasant way to spend a sunny Sunday. The market has a good selection of fruit, meat, cheese, breads etc., but also has a growing cooked foods selection that make it fun... More

We had both breakfast and lunch there. Both were really good. The people were very friendly here and it was not too crowded though the weather was sunny and warm. You could get the nicest jam, the most beautiful cheese and great wine there. This is a "must see" in Bordeaux.

Get there around 10:30am if you want to avoid the crowds at the most popular stalls, although there are plenty to go around. Just a short stroll or tram ride from the centre, we had a great time in the autumn sunshine, just people watching and enjoying freshly shucked oysters in various sizes, mussels, snails, assorted other cooked seafood, meats,...

We love love love this place. The selections of foods are amazing (a must for foodies!). We went there on a sunny day and the atmosphere was just lovely (as Shem H puts is, "bustling with happiness"). Enjoy the sights of beautiful foods and people, watch the street musicians and the children playing, and eat eat and eat.

I could go on forever). - The walk along the river is great and bustling with happiness -There are play grounds for children and a massive skate park for... More

There are a number of designer shops and outlets situated on the quay side. This area is easily accessible via the local tram bus or car, free parking available. These shops are still expensive even though they are supposed to be outlet stores. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes and it is worth a visit just for the location... More

Dont be confused with the Marche de Puce (flea market) This is a sunday market along the river, north of Place Quinconces. It is a typical french market with vegtables, fish, meats, and gifty stuff, but this also is extremely popular for lunch. Arrive early, enjoy the shopping and select a lunch before too late, as the lines are long... More

A mouthwatering market on Sunday morning at Quai Les Chartrons. Apart from the usual array of vegetables, bread, cheese, meats, there are also many stalls cooking up a very tempting selection of hot food. Skip breakfast and come here for brunch!
