Go on the first Wednesday of the month
Nov 2019
We spent a couple of days here before starting our river cruise, and we really lucked out. Apparently the first Wednesday of the month is not only for food vendors, but also vendor of antiques and vintage items. You could spend a whole day checking this market out. It was a great place to get fresh cheese, bread, meat, fruit, and veggies for a picnic in the park.

Something for Everyone

I made it a point to plan my visit to Arles so I would make it to the Saturday market. So glad it worked out.
Plan to spend at least 2 hours, and eat your way through! The food offerings are varied, abundant, and delicious! If you're staying in Arles for a few days why not buy some cheeses, cured meats, olives, fruits, salads or rices...and bring them back to your room. I did! Lovely late night snack or quick breakfast.

One end of the market has clothes, handbags, kitchen gadgets, fabrics, socks, and the like. The center is food. All kinds. From fresh to prepared, cheeses and breads, or from condiments to spices. Fabulous!!!
The other end has really nice local handcrafted wares. Soaps, linens, lavender, pottery, and olive wood kitchen utensils. To name a few.

I traveled alone and enjoyed the experience tremendously.
Lots of friendly people there too. Enjoy!

A great cultural (and shopping!) experience
Nov 2019
Try to visit the Arles Market on a Saturday morning, like us. You will be amazed by the food on display. A whole stall selling nothing but garlic…
Try not to buy anything, you won’t succeed!

Feel like a local
Oct 2019
My wife and I visited Arles on a Wednesday to enjoy the morning market. Yes, it is smaller than the one on Saturday but still very enjoyable. You will find a mixture of people with some tourists but also many locals doing their regular shopping. You can find a wide variety of goods and food. We bought spices and some soap while also trying some local pastry. Not sure if you can really negotiate. We tried with one vendor but did not have any luck. I noticed some of the produce prices dropping as the market was getting closer to closing time. Understand that both this market and the one on Saturday will be quite crowded. Still fun to do.

This is a fabulous way to get a feel of the locals while shopping in this market. It's not just for tourists. The locals shop here so you know it's authentic.

Great market with lots to see & great prices!
Jan 2019
We had such a great time at this market that we were running late for the rest of the day - but it was so much better than we imagined, so well worth it! We certainly didn't expect to get bargains in France - but we each got a great bargain at the market in Arles! There was plenty of space to wander around, the vendors were all very friendly and it had a great vibe! Arles is definitely a must-see location for us now.

Market was AMAZING
May 2019 • Couples
This was our first exposure to a European outdoor farmers market, and we were in awe. The marche in Arles went on for nearly a km, packed with fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries, cheeses, meats, seafood--really , just about anything you could want. My husband tried a sample of nougat, and his sweet tooth demanded he purchase some, but not being familiar with metric, ended up with a huge bag full, for a total of 25 euros--still laughing about it. The other half of the market had everything you need to furnish a house, including mattresses and assorted household items. Clothing also was in abundance; thankfully lacking was an overabundance of tacky souvenirs. There is also a Wednesday market but Saturday's is larger, not that it really matters. It was wonderful!

It's a Market First and a Tourist Attraction Second
Oct 2018 • Couples
We live in Arles and like other locals, we do our main food shopping at the huge Saturday market on Boulevard des Lices/Boulevard Georges Clemenceau. (There is a smaller Wednesday version on Boulevard Emile Combes). This is one of the best markets in France for the sheer quantity, quality and variety of the food available. It also attracts enormous numbers of tourists/visitors. So that everyone has a great experience, here are some suggestions.

Don't block the crowded central alleys. I've seen a young woman pushing an overloaded pack bicycle - with an equally overloaded trailer! - through the middle of the crowded aisle. She and her back pack collided with nearly everyone!

Ask before you take photos! Please buy some local products - they are excellent - as photos shouldn't be the only thing you take away from a market. Give way to other market-goers, particularly elderly women with shopping trolleys and families.

Overall, awareness of how your actions affect others in a crowded place would be very positive. While you might be there for the spectacle, others are doing their major weekly food shop. It is a market, after all!

Gigantic. Great food vendors. Plus a lot of junk.
Sep 2018 • Couples
For a tourist just passing through, there isn't that much to buy. Nonetheless, just taking it all in via a long stroll makes it worthwhile. There's a lot to see. We mixed in the Van Gogh walking tour and stopped by the Colosseum plus stopped for lunch. Arrived in Arles around 9 a.m. and left town around 2 p.m.
