“Not sure if I should tell...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Les Halles, the Avignon food market is absolutely lovely. And perfect for lovers of oysters and other seafood you can sit down at one of the bars and order a dozen or two, and a handful of shrimps and some sea snails... freshly from the stalls. To be tasted with a glass of Picpoule or a bitter beer... there's nothing better for breakfast after a solid party night. For lunch, buy a slice of paté de canard for a starter, and on your way out you buy some raspberries for desert... Life is great, no?

“Good Market to see Local Produce, Seefood and Meats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

This was an indoor farmers type market which is open daily. A good place to watch the local people shop for cheese, produce and meats. Also very good to see first hand the produce and meats of the area. Spend some time, just walk around and take in the smells. You can also enjoy a few samples of wine and cheese in some stalls.

“Jazzed & Enchanted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

My senses were jazzed and I was enchanted with all the exquisite and wonderful foods...my eyes could hardly take in all the different and unique foods of Provence. Definitely a must and even a daily do, on your trip to Avignon!

“Indoor food market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

This had a lot of very good looking Provencal food. It didn't feel very touristy to me at all. It seemed to me that this was a place Avignon where people actually get their food. From wine to spices, its a great place to check out. I think you could stop here before sight seeing around Avignon and pick up stuff for a picnic or snacks throughout the day. It only has food stuffs, no souvenir type things. It also has some coffee and wine bars.
