We came across Marche de la Croix-Rousse purely by chance, while wandering the streets in the vicinity. It is a great market where you can buy almost anything. We walked through for some time and actually enjoyed the experience. It's worth spending some time here if you really want to buy something, otherwise only if you have time to spare.

This market is open on Saturdays and Sundays and is huge. We took the metro from Bellecour to Hotel de Ville then transferred to metro C and got off at Croix Rousse. Upon exiting the station, if you walk on the INSIDE passage, these are all new goods--scarves at 10euros and many other great finds. If you go to Blvd Croix Rousse, which is perpendicular to this passageway, then it's like a flea market with so many stands of used goods from kitchen things to clothing to toys. Mainly junk but still a nice stroll to see what is offered. Across the Blvd from this are your vendors that sell very cheap produce, fruits, meats, chickens, cheeses, and etc. These stalls close down by 1:00pm so must get there before 1pm but the 2nd hand stalls go past beyond 1pm. Right by the passageway and the Blvd Croix Rousse is a Bistrot Jutard and we bought fresh cooked bulot, couteaux, oysters, and find our own table to eat at. Prices for bulot was very reasonable along with the couteaux. We had their #3 fine de clairs oysters but it was quite salty. Again, you pay first then they bring it to you. You should grab your own bottle of vinaigrette to your table for your oysters. They also have this chive aioli sauce for the bulot which was delicious. We bought our beers at the bar for 6euros/pint and a glass of wine for 2.80euros. We had so much bulots, 12 couteaux, 12 fine de claires, 2 pints 1664, and 1 glass of wine all for about 65 euros.

Don't miss out; get yourself up the hill and experience some of the best (and most inexpensive) food in Lyon. This market will make you want to stay for a month (or a year) just to try all of the wonderful food from the very friendly people at each stall.

We had a great time browsing this large market. It is set on a hill overlooking Lyon and is a busy market selling allsorts of local produce from wine to cheeses. We went on a Sunday which is also the day for the Flea market and Handicrafts. The place can get very busy but it just goes to show how good it is. If, like me, you don't speak much French look for the stalls that have the pre-prepared bowls of produce so you know what you are getting and what the price will be. Although I did have a go at asking, luckily the French have a great sense of humour!!
