If gastronomy were a religion, Lyon would be a pilgrimage site, Les Halles would be the temple and its sixty-or-so shopkeepers would be the preachers.

Before stepping into the Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, prepare yourself for the vibrant atmosphere filled with flavours, colours, scents and the stallholders’ voices ringing out. A unique experience. Whether you live in the city or are just passing through, this market leaves a lasting impression. Market-goers stroll along the aisles as they explore the tempting offerings of traditional merchants and holders of the prestigious title ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ (MOF).

Who would want to miss the chance to taste a quenelle made by Giraudet or share a platter of wonderfully fresh seafood from Chez Antonin, present at the market since 1906? How to resist the enticing aromas wafting out from Bahadourian, , which has supplied culinary stars with herbs, spices, condiments, pickles, legumes and specialities from around the world since 1929?

From the second half of the nineteenth century to the present day, the Halles de Lyon has been the home of various food merchants. When it was created in 1859, Lyon’s first indoor food market brought together the city’s stallholders on Place des Cordeliers. 

One century later, in the heart of the Part-Dieu district, following a major construction project, the food market was named after our multi-starred Chef and local hero, Paul Bocuse, thus becoming the Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse. 

The market now attracts as many tourists as it does locals, who come to discover produce of unmatched quality, including smoked salmon from Maison Rolle, cheese from Mère Richard and Cellerier, sweet delicacies from Sève and Bouillet, and steaks from Garçons Bouchers. All in all, more than sixty merchants gather here to celebrate Lyon’s gastronomic excellence.
