#1 of 9 in Shopping in Avignon
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Avignon trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Very nice place for shopping and taste local produce (and other). We ate a plate of shellfish could on-site in a small booth potluck.

  • We do not lack this appointment as soon as we climb on avignon. To remember the smells of my childhood. Saw that life in toulon. Meet me in this place is magical.

  • Open only in the morning. Natural yeast bread, BIO vegetables and fruit, BIO butcher, specializes in oysters, fish... is a treasure trove of ingredients in Provence. Olive shop I can taste. It is recommended to anchovy paste or Tapenade. Cold-pressed juice is very tasty.

  • Avignon was a street in Barcelona Ugly and narrow, near the central square Then there was this blue painting from Picasso, And there was a friendly village surrounded by summer. But it was all messed up
  • Local roofed market. Excellent variety of fish, meat, poultry, pastry , produce. A pleasure to look at the produce. We bought our lunch from various shops. Excellent cheese, olives, bread and fruits
  • If only I could, I would buy everything they sell here... And I would put tons of weight on with their fantastic food. Such a fantastic market, everything they sell is delicious and of top quality. I love this place!
  • Quite impressive when the shops are open and things are bustling -- just not enough places offering a taste of what they're selling ;-)
  • Don't miss out on this quintessentially French experience! Whether you're putting together a tasty selection of wine, cheese and charcuterie for a picnic or laying in a shop for your kitchen, there is something mouthwatering waiting for you to discover! Plus small restaurant stalls with tapas, oysters and more!!
