The old world charm of France is reinstated and rekindled whenever one thinks of Avignon Les Halles, the largest marketplace there. It has served as a hangout hub for the residents of the historic commune of Avignon. Their reputation has been established by authors such as Peter Mayle or Jean Viard . The northern facade of 6 ha (6,458 square ft.) is covered with a green wall designed by Patrick Blanc. Its authenticity makes it a major tourist attraction. It is better known as the city of the popes. The chief commodities traded here are bread, cheese, fruits, vegetables, poultry, baked goods, deli, olives, shells, flowers, and organic and exotic products. Citizens are usually butchers, fishmongers, creamer, caterer or cellar.

  • We were three here on this market and bought a very good bread and olives, a sausage and "Crème aux swamplands" us one day before departure. Ales is very tasty, unfortunately were some guided tours of the Hall and it filled, sometimes rather unfavorable standing the course from stand to stand.

  • The traders were great and we had tried a number of olives and tapenade. You can get all local produce there. Great to visit if you have time. 
  • A good food market selling a pleasing array of products.
  • Great produce. Don't miss the quiche stand.
