Wandered through here just as they were closing the produce section (it closes early, 1PM if I remember) and there is an impressive display of fresh everything...fun just to walk around and look. Off to the side of the foods counters there are a number of restaurants and shops. There is also a public parking in the building.

The fresh product market is all you can wish for, including a great little cafe. The centre cafes are good (I do not include McDo) but the shopping is rubbish

We found this market early in our stay in Nimes. Luckily, we rented an apartment for the week so we could cook a few meals. Highly recommend even if you don't cook! Food sensory overload!

..Les Halles is for you. Park upstairs in the garage and then wander the bountiful aisles of the freshest and highest quality meat, fish, bread, fruit and vegetables. It is a lot of fun and a truly French experience. We purchased two line caught sea bass and the fishmonger and his wife did a wonderfully friendly job cleaning the fish... More

The gastronome Brillat Savarin once said "tell me what you eat and i will tell you what you are". A great way to know a city in France (and Spain and...) is to visit the main fodd market (les Halles). Make it a destination and you will not be disappointed. Browse around the alleys and ask the butche how to... More

With superb fishmongers, several excellent butchers and game merchants, the best cheese specialist in the region and fruit and vegatable stalls galore the only problem is deciding what to cook. Les Halles is open tuesday to sunday mornings but shop early for the best choice.Then... More

This is the most fantastic market I have ever been to. Stalls of fish, meat, cheese, fruit, vegetables, bread and wine abound. It is open 7 days a week until 1330 and is heaving with locals purchasing their supplies. Absolutely everything is so fresh and colourful. The highlight for me was the seafood counter where I tasted 6 fresh oysters... More

What a fantastic market, a wonder around the stalls is a delight to all the senses. If you are a tourist buy bread, quiche, pate en croute, olives, tapenade or whatever takes your fancy, it is bound to be good …….. and have a picnic in the magnificent Jardins des Fontaines. And it it easy to park in the nearby... More
