Lyon’s largest outdoor food market in the heart of the city.
A wonderful selection of produce including, fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, cheese, bread, wine and pastries. There is a lot of regional food as well as imported produce and many vendors sell hot dishes such as spit roasted chickens and fresh pizzas and there are various Asian and North African dishes available ready to eat. There are dried fruits, grains, spices, olives, honey and many speciality items.
There is perhaps slightly more emphasis on gourmet foods at the St Antoine Market as compared to Lyon’s other large outdoor market in La Croix Rousse.
The market dates back to around 1910 when boats loaded with produce would arrive in Lyon and moor along the quays of the River Saone. This lively market is frequented by locals, tourists and the chefs of Lyon’s finest restaurants in search of quality ingredients for their customers.
There are often on weekends around 140 vendors who come from the Rhone Valley and surrounding areas.
St Antoine Market is a great place for your daily grocery shopping and one of the best places to find gourmet and speciality food items in a convenient central location.
