...although there are countless good eateries in Rouen...this little market is a place one has to visit for everything from seafood to cheeses to bread of all sorts to cured meats and other delicious treats. ...make a picnic basket filled with cheeses roast chicken and a salad...and go back to the Cathedrale grounds... ...oh and bring a chilled Rose.

An interesting but sad place as it was the place where Joab of Arc was executed. There is a fabulous market and also there are many good restuarants in the area...a must do place when visitng Rouen.

Despite the poor weather, we had a great time here. A lovely way to spend a couple hours, huddling under the small tents and tasting a mouth watering array of local and non-local delicacies. we also were able to gather many gifts given the diversity of products on offer. We especially loved the hand-made soap products availabel at a very... More

Nice area with character - lots of restaurants and a few shops. Nice place for a drink and conversation. The Joan of Arc Church is there where they turned her a bit crispy. Beware on nights when there is a football / soccer match on as they do tend to get a bit roudy especially if it is certain teams... More

There can be few things better than sitting outside a café in the Place de Vieux-Marche in Rouen. It has everything. It has great cafes and restaurants; it has one of the most beautiful churches in the world and it has a history that cannot fail to make you think. It encourages a philosophical attitude to life and I have... More

Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz. Lovely restaurants as well, lively.

We had diner at the Place du Vieux Marché, next to a souvenir shop and the next day we were sick from fish!

The Sunday market was my favorite time spent in Rouen. I went to several markets throughout France during my three week holiday. Rouen was my favorite! The entire town was closed except for a few cafés and restaurants. The main square & side streets were bustling with people. Anything & everything was for sale. My husband had an outstanding sausage... More

Walking by the stalls with their fresh hot dishes and cooked meat like duck breasts and whole chickens, I wished I had somewhere to store and sit down to eat some of these things. I suppose we could've gone back to our hotel room and eaten, but hanging out in the Place du Vieux-Marche was fun and we didn't want... More
