If you're in the mood for fresh food, amazing smells, beautiful flowers and lots of people watching, then you're in for a treat. Every day (except Mondays) you'll find produce, cheeses, meats, fish, and more... But the best days (more vendors on the market) are...More

Beautiful fresh produce. If you arent confident speaking in french, look for stalls where produce is already seperated into little tin bowls and individually priced. I got a bowl of beatiful chanterelle mushrooms for 2 euros and big juicy figs for 4. Everything you need...More

This is a daily market - other than Mondays - in the chic Croix-Rousse area of Lyon, way above the Rhone river. What a treat for the senses. Smell the flowers, drool over the vibrant fresh vegetable and fruit, and be mesmerised by the spit-roasted...More

It's not a market you go to on purpose, but if you are looking around, and stumble upon the market, it's quite interesting. There are many food stalls, so quite a lot of interesting colours and smells.

A typical and lovely market in a great situation by the river. Sadly as we were hotel bound we couldn't take advantage of the tremendous selection. Iparticularly liked the stall with a huge selection of mushrooms.

The market spreads out for miles, offering everything from bathroom plugs to fine foods and lots in between. Make a day of it, it's easy to get to.
