“Quaint little covered market”
Review of Marche Couvert

Marche Couvert
Ranked #8 of 78 things to do in Colmar

Reviewed June 15, 2013

As we are finding in France the covered markets are exceptionally clean & well laid out. This one is small however we found enough stalls to make purchases of the delicious local produce to provide us with some of our meals whilst visiting this gorgeous little town.

I typically love when traveling hitting up the local markets and making at least one meal of it. The market here was not terrific--there were some food stands but a lot of it was things like unprepared fish or produce--not a lot of ready to eat meals that we could eat lunch there. Also, the variety really wasn't too great. overall, i was unimpressed.

Nice covered market with a fun variety of stalls. Buy a pretzel or pick up some fruit and head out to stroll around little Venice.

I don't know how the other feel, but I think this marche is quite small compare to the others. But the marche is absolutely well organize, and have the decent items, from cheese to spice. I discovered this marche when I visit Colmar, and didn't exactly plan to go to the marche. I ended up buying so many cheeses, and some cute little pies. They also sell very good yogurt ice cream, too!

We found this market by happy accident! It is a wonderful place to pick up cheeses, meats, bread and sweets from local vendors for a picnic lunch or dinner. All of the owners of the stands are friendly and helpful with selections of their foods. This market is right next to the Petite Venice area and so it is centrally located in the pedestrian area of Colmar. There are also a few small cafes to sit and relax with a coffee, beer or snack.
