Nice to walk through, lots of local traders selling all sorts- we bought some local honey. There is food being cooked all around you so enjoy the smells as you're making your way though the stalls!

Very colorful and variety of street foods. U see an array of crafts too. eat at the Indian stall, or the "wrap' with your choice of accompaniments. about 5 euro. Fish and meat too variable (fresh). A lovely festive look.

Fresh fruit, vegetables, meat , fish and local crafts. We enjoyed the Saturday markets. Great to get fresh produce we can’t get at home. Walking distance to Latin quarter and the rest of town.
