Nîmes Les Halles, Southern France

Les Halles, Nîmes’ covered food market, is a delight. Clean, bright and colorful with a wide range of produce, dairy, meat and fish it is a great place to shop for provisions, take photos, or just watch the locals do their thing. Vendors are generally friendly and patient with foreigners. Although technically open every morning there is very little activity on Monday mornings, Saturdays are quite busy and I’m not sure about Sundays. By 1pm it’s a ghost town.
