La Halle. It is an absolute wonderland of fresh produce and we place gigantic red tomatoes, crisp lettuce, an avocado from Africa, crisp cucumber, fresh farm eggs and mushroom into our basket along with garlic bulbs. The choices are endless and we just have to have a baguette and the most tempting mille-feuille, (vanilla slice), for desert. Here is the... More

Great place to visit on tour but never have enough time to see everything! Cheeses, meats, chocolate, wine, etc.!!! Vendors were very friendly and samples galore. One can spend hours just roaming around and looking in the display cases. There was always someone available to help with any language problems.

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
