Narbonne Shopping: 3 reviews and 8 photos
There were over 70 traders and artisans with permanent stalls at Les Halles – including at least one stall which has been occupied by generations of the same family since the market was opened in 1901! Dedicated to providing the city with the best quality produce, the stall holders convene every day from 6 am to 1 pm to take part in this important daily event which almost seems to define Narbonne. Indeed local people are right to be proud of their famous market in this beautiful pavilion.
It's quite a typical place as we found fresh food, accessories, but above all, a burst of colours, people, voices, light, noises, aromas and characters straight out of a storybook. In the back of the building there was quite a small separated part with its own entrance. Right there we saw these fish stalls, where the fish arrived and was cleaned at the same spot. There were some stands where the fish was sold and we were really impressed by it, because we saw a lot of native fish, prawns and other fish we didn't recognize. Of course many of them were still alive … talking about fresh! We simply loved this colourful place full of life and if you are looking to see the real life in the South of France you won’t be disappointed in coming here.
What to buy: You can buy any of the local specialties.
What to pay: That's up to yourself. Do toggle off!
