Judged by any reasonable standard, Avignon Les Halles is one of the nicest indoor marketplaces you’ll find in a city of this size. We spend a happy hour or so browsing the many stalls and making a few small purchases. I was especially fascinated with the seafood stalls, which displayed many finfish and shellfish unfamiliar to me, and I saw... More

Having failed to find Les Halles in Lyon we made an extra special effort to find this one and were no disappointed. The standard of all the stalls was excellent. The produce looked fresh, the bread looked fabulous and the herbs smelled wonderful! The young lady on the Herb Stall spoke perfect English and explained how we could use some... More

This is a classic French marketplace. Enjoy walking around and tasting the many offerings, the boulangerie, cheese and wine. Go for breakfast, you can have a coffee and a sweet pastry. What a way to start your walking tour of Avignon. The lavender shop and wine shops are also amazing,. You'll also enjoy strolling the fish stand and butcher. The... More

Every visitor must visit this market to be able to experience in one location all the food that's available to the locals. It made us want to return to Avignon and rent a flat to be able to take advantage of this market.

Les Halles is a feast for the senses...everything is gorgeous! If I lived in Avignon, I'd shop here daily. Stop in for a treat at one of the seafood counters, buy some lovely fruit or vegetables, grab a dessert for later. It's stunning.

Our tour guide recommended this market for getting a picnic-type lunch to go and eat in the park. One of the few times in France where we found very little English speaking vendors. We were able to communicate by pointing and trying our limited French and it turned out to be a very nice experience. We ate in a nearby... More

The various food stalls in the hall provide a rich palate for photos. Amazingly, the food is quite reasonable so a great place to get cheese, bread and wine for a lunch.

Great checking out the various vegetables, meats, cheeses, flowers, ect. We had a great oyster lunch with wine here (back corner). Going on a picnic, stop here first.

A wonderful jam packed life filled foodie extravaganza! Whooee!! On a rainy fall day we parked in the adjacent lot, then walked in to a rowdy colorful zoo of customers and workers and controlled chaos. It's not really such a large space, so we were able to see most of it in forty minutes or so. By then it was... More

What a fabulous indoor market! So many different beautiful food options to chose from. We selected olives, dips, fresh breads to have a feast for lunch and also got food for dinner. Can't wait to head back tomorrow for more foodie delights! Maybe not the cheapest option but so many fabulous treats!
