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.

  • This place is a dream! Fresh everything! Different vendors and fairly large! I would go back just for a snack!  more »
  • Unfortunately during our 3 night stay in Avignon, Les Halles was only open once. We were so happy we managed to go there though, it is full of all sorts of wonderful stalls selling everything from Win...  more »
  • France has many great markets but this isn't one of them. The quality of the produce hits the spot but the prices are designed to separate the gullible from the contents of their wallets. Avoid.  more »

  • 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.
  • Great market. If you are staying in an Airbnb, definitely shop here and cook at least one dinner at home.
  • 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 😁
  • Great place for a café allongée in the morning. Watching locals do there groceries.
  • Fun market in a less touristy part of Avignon. Lots of local traffic.
