We bought VERY tasty paella, nougat, framboises and strawberries. Parking is just outside - paid but cheap. Unfortunately not a market where they sell 'tous produits': no clothes etc.

Daily 7-13. Especially on Wednesdays and Sundays, you won’t only find all kind of market stands inside the iconic 50ies market hall, but also an outside market around it. A wonderful opportunity not only to shop, but also to try and have a breakfast or...More

First thing that strikes you about the market building is it's shape. Like a massive clam shell. Mostly fruit and flowers outside. Inside is a cornucopia of fish, cheese, meat, fruit, vegetables etc. Lots of artisan foods. Nice way to pass a couple of hours

in the center of Royan, this Market offers great local products. If you decide to go on a Tuesday, many additional artisans will be there to offer their craft.
