  • Avignon morning market is the perfect place to start your second morning in Avignon. It is a covered market, first opened in 1859, and offers the wares of the farmers living around the city. Before heading out to the other sites in the track, you can purchase some fresh bread that has just come out of the oven, some vegetables and fruits and make yourself a light and delicious breakfast. The market is also a highly recommended place for those of you who eat seafood. Opening hours: Sundays and Saturdays from 6:00 to 14:00, Tuesdays to Fridays from 6:00 to 13:30. Distance from the previous point: The market is located at 8 Place Pie.
  • I love food markets and this one does not disappoint. You can't miss it. It's near the center of the town and has huge vegetation growing all over it. They have so many things to choose from inside. Fish, breads, and sweets. There is a great bread bakery in the back. I received that info from a local and it was a great recommendation.
