Avignon Gourmet Tours

A Market in Provence

Do you know « Les Halles » in Avignon ?

Located at the heart of the city, the covered market « Les Halles » has been trading since the XIX century.
Six days a week, from 6am, the shop owners start their day at one of the most colorful markets of Provence. These people, passioned about their region, are true ambassadors of Provençal products.

From seasonal fruits and veg, olives, cheeses, fish, to wine, bread or meat, anything that grows or is produced in Provence can be found there. Despite being traditional, some stall owners offer more modern alternatives like vegan baking, or the very fashionable « macaron » biscuits, available in all colours and flavours.

Les Halles is a lively place that is well worth a visit if you are in Avignon. No where else in town you will feel this vibrant market atmosphere. Service is excellent at any of the stalls, so don’t be afraid to ask for advice.

Besides, if you happen to be there on a saturday, do not miss the cooking demo at 11am. Every week a different chef from a local restaurant will cook a seasonal recipe in front of you and will give you several tips about seasonal ingredients and recipes.

Les Halles, Place Pie. Open Tue-Sun, mornings only.
