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 enjoy visiting markets in France and as a permanent market Les Halles isn't as interesting as the local farmers markets. However it's got everything one might need. Try the ladies near the middle w...  more »
  • Discovery of the Avignon sign for 25 breakfast. I read on the window that the loaves are made by women and passionate men. The quality of the offer is in the make you and the many appetizing these breads. At the level of order this is a disappointment. A person on the edge of aggressiveness... noticed by customers who preceded me... one has even decided to give up order and went elsewhere. My turn... I can't regret the attitude of the person in charge of orders. Probably a too much work load at the festival?, to help him get by the organization is to review (a person could sell the bread and pastries to take away and another could well take the DPJ commands). The person who served us at the table was charming and quite representative of claimed values. And the very good breakfast... both in quality of bread than butter and jams... and the perfect pressed orange. That this note can provide impeccable service in line with the string values.

  • Space interesting with many choices, even a restaurant that request 5 euro for the cooking of the fish you choose not cooked. Various products of all origins. Attention is not open the afternoon.

  • Love markets and as alwYs go as early as you can. Less crowded and more choice. I noticed the butchers cut cured and cooked meats thick so either ask for fewer slices or to cut them thinner or you end up with too much food. There are great condiments on offer too along with breads and sweets. All you need for a lavish pic nic. Don't expect cheap though.
  • Medium size market, with very good range of different products, parking also good. A bit of tourist attraction, but fully working, awsome local market. Worth a visit to eat something, do the shopping or just wander around.
  • Awesome fresh produce. We picked up enough fresh cheese, meats, spread, olives and bread for €15 for 3 people. Shop owners very welcoming and even let us sample some products.
  • Local fresh food and delicacy market...nice vibe on sunday mornings when the locals have a glass of vine and eat what they bought from the market
  • This place is a gourmet heaven. I totally love it and always spend ages here. There is nowhere like it in Ireland! The closest would be The English Market in County Cork. I find it so relaxing. The early bird catches the worm. It opens at 6 am - 14.00 hrs. You will get all your needs here, and live music! They sell Irish cheese. People travel here to buy it! If you travel to Avignon, visiting here is a must. It's amazing 😁
