We visited first to just look and then twice to buy food. There is a great selection! Organic gluten-free bread, for example. We picked and chose and chatted in Franglish with the stallholders. It was fascinating and fun and delicious. Free, too, if you can stop yourself buying!

Les Halles is well worth a visit if you are a foodie - every kind of local produce you could imagine - all very tempting! There is a reasonably priced car park on site and Les Halles is in a square with many bars and restaurants nearby. One thing to note - though Tripadvisor says it is open in the... More

If it isn't here, Avignon may not have it. A huge selection of fish, meats, cheeses, olives, caviar and bulk spices. Reminiscent of the Spice Market in Istanbul, but under one huge roof. Many vendors had samples for tasting. Pickled garlic cloves were wonderful. Our tour from the river cruise only gave us about 20 minutes, so we didn't see... More

Les Halles is a must see to take in all the ingredients comprising a fabulous french meal. One stall after another is an array for the senses: spices, fish, meats, cheese, olives, vegetables, flowers, bread, chocolate, macaroons, etc. Each one exquisite in their own right. Where the locals shop.

Lots of food choices to choose from for a picnic, snacking or to take home! There was an amazing selection of Provençal coarse salts to choose from, as well as cheeses, charcuterie, wines, pastas, breads, etc.

Even though I am not really buying groceries, it is fun to wander through the markets in France and see the extensive produce, cheeses, meats, fish, spices, breads, etc. You can have a drink here, or an espresso, or a pastry.
