  • Small market with a couple of places to eat. Quite relaxed and well presented stalls. Do not expect too much. There are much better markets in France than this one.  more »
  • For those who saw Turkish or Spanish markets, I would say this is closed to a Spanish market. Filled with tasty treats, meats, vegs, perfect for a lunch on the spot for tourists.  more »

  • This market was quite small but we were able to get some really good things. Fresh fruit nectar and jellies were excellent.
  • One of the best markets I have ever been to. Large assortment of fish, fruit, veg, and specialty items.
  • Fabulous place to shop, buy and try regional cuisine! A must do in Avignon!
  • Fantastic food market, you'll find plenty of stalls selling good things to eat, whatever your taste.
  • Great produce. Don't miss the quiche stand.
