More than 100 stallholders welcome market shoppers with a smile and handy tips.
The market is held along the banks of the Saône on Quais des Célestins and Quai Saint-Antoine, with a splendid view of Old Lyon, where stallholders display, in the morning from Tuesday to Sunday, their products: fruit and vegetables, cheese, meat, poultry, roast chicken, cooked meat, fish, bread, cakes, wine and flowers.
This is one of the favourite markets for the people of Lyon, as well as for chefs, who you may happen to bump into if you’re an early riser!
A number of excellent producers, pork butchers and cheese-makers, who have been working here for a very long time, are the iconic figures of this market. All of the regional produce is sold at competitive prices, smile included!
People come to this market that is filled with fresh produce, mouth-watering smells and flavours to discover, to do their food shopping, of course, but also simply to stroll, chat and seek tips and advice.
To make the most of the experience, people stop for a drink in one of the bars or drink stalls along the river bank… More than simply a market, this is an experience in the fine French art of living!
