If you can eat it, you will find it here! Open every day except Monday, from 6 am until 1:30 pm (2 pm weekends), but get there early for the best choice because when they sell out, they close. Les Halles is a new building, with a very appropriate living green facade designed by botanist Patrick Blanc in 2006. There... More

This is an amazingly clean market, with a huge variety of fresh produce, seafood and poultry. Cheese, spices and olive oil as well. We came here specifically for a Wed morning cooking class. Julien was amazingly fun, entertaining and personable. And, yes, we learned some great Provecal cooking tips too! Les Halles is fairly buried in the middle of the... More

This is a fresh market in an old building in Avignon. The outside is interesting because of the vertical garden growing on the wall at the entrance. We were meeting a local chef for a cheese, wine, bread, olive tasting, which was very good. The market has everything: fruit, vegetables, bread, cheese, fish, meat, pastries, ice cream...one could spend a... More

Surprisingly to me, this is actually a tourist attraction because this is the normal spot where I do my shopping. It's hard to believe that fresh local foods are such a rarity that this place warrants a spot on the tourist trail.. That being said, this is a fantastic market, I almost always buy my fresh vegetables and fruits from... More

As l;ocal markets go this one is pretty upscale when compared to those in the neighboring towns and other regions of France. Prices aren't great but there is a fabulous selection of local products and the vendors are without exception eager to please and eager to impress with the produce of their little corner of France. We did the Saturday... More

A compact but perfectly formed food market displaying regional foods and French staples. Some of the stall owners are happy to joke around and it has a good feel. Perfect for picnic fare. Worth visiting.

As we were staying at a hotel, we could not profit from this extremely miscellaneous selection of food. But we had our morning coffee there at a small bar together with fresh pastry and enjoyed the hustle and bustle.
