France is renowned for its fruit and vegetable markets and the guide books extolled the merits of Les Halles in Avignon. It is a short walk from the main centre and forms the ground floor of a large multi-storey car park.
There are over 40 stalls selling a wonderful display of fresh fruit and vegetables along with meat, fish, cheesesbread.. It is just a food market with none of the clothes and other goods now found in English markets.
It was mid morning on a Thursday when I visited and I was surprised how quiet the market was. It opens at 6am and has closed by 1.30.
I visited here on Day 7 of Burgundy, the River Rhone and Provence, a river cruise with Riviera Travel. My full account with all the pictures can be found “here.”:http://wasleys.org.uk/eleanor/otherholidays/rhone/index.html
