This was a disappointment. We walked across the city to visit this market after seeing the reviews on trip adviser.. either the reviews are done by the merchant themselves or these people have never been to an indoor market because this was rubbish. The stalls looked sorry for themselves, there was no variety as they basically all sold the same thing and it was smelly. The smell of wee just transcendent the market. We left after about 10 min. Wouldn’t recommend if you’ve been to any other indoor market. By comparison, Covent Garden market is more exciting - and that’s saying something.

We took a stroll down to Marches des Capucins after watching the Rick Stein episode in Bordeaux! We were super impressed with the fresh produce on offer and tried a selection of mini bastide saucissons from a meat counter - so delicious and much better than the store bought options we are used to! After wandering around and stopping for a beer, we moved onto a small, lively mussel bar located near the entrance of the market called Poulette. We made friends with almost every person sat at the bar! The mussels were absolutely fantastic served with a generous portion of fries. The atmosphere was great and the staff were enthusiastic and very friendly. This was such a great find and a lunch we will treasure forever!

Visited here whilst on a long weekend in Bordeaux and although it was a lovely market it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Smaller than we expected and lots of the stalls were closed. We visited mid morning and covid would have probably been a factor I guess. Worth visiting if you're in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way if you've got to travel from the other side of the city.

This place is incredible. Don’t be put off by first impressions - it’s very busy, hectic and overwhelming but stick it out! It’s really authentic and a fantastic experience. This is the best fish platter I’ve ever had. Really reasonably priced and the staff were very efficient. Runs like clockwork and was a highlight of our time in Bordeaux!

This is a great Market. We walked past it a couple of times and eventually decided to go in to take a look. It's got the lot. Fresh food of all descriptions. Fresh fruit and vegetables, to meat and fish. There is so much cheese and such great variety, it is just unbelievable. We love cheese so we bought a selection and enjoyed it with some lovely crusty bread. We washed it down with a little French wine. This is a place to go to if you want good food.

This market is amazing and a must see, as you can find lots of the local products and also see how the locals live.
It was very busy but i thought it was one of the best markets i’ve visited, so well organised and so much offer. Traditional french food and from around the world.

Local food and fish market, worth a visit to see this through the eyes of a tourist. Lots of interesting fresh fish, meats and veg. Couple of bars there, where you can join the locals. Set in a busy area which has a street market too 🇫🇷

It was very nice walking through the market and checking out extensive offerings of meats, hams, cheeses and seafood. Prices were cheaper than in the local shops. That said, there is nothing special about this market so it’s not necessarily a destination point.

Bordeaux's best and largest outdoor food market. After the river scene, the must place to visit in Bordeaux. Open 7 days a week and free, but best on Thursday, Friday and Saturday before noon. An authentic, large scale market, featuring the best meats, fruits, vegetables, cheeses, fish and shellfish in Bordeaux. Marche des Capucins is where the locals go for the best food. Enjoy the great atmosphere, have a glass of wine and oysters while watching the market activity, and buy a few things you'll savor and enjoy.

We had a guided tour of the marketplace with the executive chef of our Viking Ship. Having a pro like that does make a big difference! He had both knowledge of and working relationships with the market and the individual vendors. He had vetted the vendors and the food products that offered--both were excellent. We had samples of the meats, cheeses and other delicacies as we walked.

This one floor market has been around a long time and works really smoothly. It is easy to get around and the aisles are wide enough for groups. The people were friendly and willing to talk.

We ended the walk with a meal at one of the "restaurants" in the market. They are really sitting areas next to the stalls. The food was fresh and well prepared. All in all, it is a fun little trip through an active neighborhood market.
