This is a pretty spectacular market in Avignon. It is quite large and has an excellent variety of fresh produce, cheeses, meats, breads, wine and much more - a true example of how wonderful French food is. It is clean, colorful and fun to wander through whether or not you make a purchase. Definitely worth checking out and you may... More

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 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
