One of the best markets I’ve visited. It was like Les Halles Paul Bocuse in Lyon except not pretentious and expensive. I liked that market too, but I loved the one in La Rochelle. Just looking at the food available was impressive and overwhelming. If you are lucky, you can snag a table and eat oysters straight from the seafood stalls. The outskirts have cafes. Incredible people watching. It’s a must see for La Rochelle visitors.

This is the big food market in the center of town. If you like to look at fresh food and chat with vendors, this is the place for you. Very lovely displays.

If you are coming to La Rochelle this is a must. The vast range of fresh products on offer is amazing. The market spills onto several streets and there is a lively bustling atmosphere. Large queues form for the most popular stores. However don’t leave it too late as the market tends to wrap up round about 1.00pm.

We toured Old part of La Rochelle. Old City Hall (under renovation due to fire 5 years ago) is a site to see. Old streets lined with pink umbrellas honoring October breast cancer awareness leading one to the farmers market. The market is opened daily with unending offerings of fish, cheeses, breads and veggies. We bought oysters, shrimp, crab salad, salmon salad and olives to take back to our hotel for dinner. Friendly people selling their goods with many locals and some tourists making their purchases. Located in the center of the Old town. Really something to experience.

This is we worth a visit.
The market itself is great with great selection.
Outside the market there was three more streets of stalls etc.
The whole thing took about an hour.
Well worth the visit.

Great way to get to see an important part of French culture

Through food you can learn so much about the importance of food to the French. Simply amazing how French market stall owners set out their stalls.
