I have visited Les Halles several times of the last couple of years on holiday and it is just wonderful. An amazing choice of stalls all with their own specialities. Fruit and Veg like you never see in the UK; beautiful choices of fresh meat and fish; an amazing spice counter and breads. Even a couple of little coffee/cafes for... More

Much better markets in France than this, such as in Narbonne. Of course, I compare all to Barcelona's Boqueria ( not fair )Many of the stalls were closed.

Plenty of pretty stalls in the covered market. Was especially delighted to see so many local specialities and the beautiful produce. If you like markets in an orderly fashion, this is a place to visit!

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.

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 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
