Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse#6 in Best Things To Do in Lyon
Price & Hours
Called a "heaven for foodies," Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse is the city's premier indoor food market boasting nearly 50 vendors and several bars and restaurants. Here you'll find everything from fruits and vegetables to cheese, truffles, spices, flowers and everything in between.
Past visitors raved about the market and were especially impressed with the variety of cheeses and cured meats. If you're in need of picnic supplies, this is the place to go, according to reviewers. Buying the food here and eating it elsewhere may be your best bet as some past travelers complained of limited seating inside the market. If you're interested in perusing some of the city's outdoor markets, St Antoine Market and La Croix Rousse Market are two popular options.
You'll find the food market situated a five-minute walk from the Gare de Lyon-Part-Dieu; the nearest metro station is Place Guichard. The T1 tram also stops nearby at Mairie du 3eme. Access to the market is free. Les Halles welcomes visitors from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Vendors close for the day at 7 p.m., but restaurants and bars stay open until 10:30 p.m. On Sunday, the market opens at 7 a.m., with vendor service ending at 1 p.m. and restaurants serving until 4:30 p.m. For more information, visit the market's official website (in French).
