We visited this wonderful market on April 9, a Sunday. It was vibrant, exciting, and alive with enthusiastic vendors and shoppers. I could compare it with markets in other places like Peru, but it was much cleaner, safer, and better organized. We wanted to find steamed mussels (moules frites) and we did so at a small restaurant inside the market... More

I loved this market and visited each dayI was in Bordeaux. The products on offer are quality and you can tell the sellers care about what they do. The seafood stands are a pleasure to see (and not smell because fresh seafood doesn't smell) and my wife had to tear me away from the oyster stalls. There are a number... More

We always try and visit a food market when we are in a new city. This one was pretty much as we expected, lots of fresh produce, fish and meat. We didn't buy as we were staying in a hotel but the quality looked to be very good.

Whilst the prices are expensive, the assortment of food and drink at the different vendors is wonderful. Plus, a number speak English which helps!

The only thing I regret of this market is that its not right beside home; otherwise I would do all my shopping here! Great meat, fish and cheese sellers and also tapas and other foods and cafes. Not a beautiful market, but definitely a lively one

A busy buzz half open air market selling local (bio) products; meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit, cheese, spices, bread, wine and ethnic cuisine e.g. Reunion, Chinese, Italian, Mediterranean, Basque. There are counters/bars/tables where you can take a bite or lunch and wine. Do not expect high end cleanliness (floor can be wet and smelly), it's a local market place and the... More

Capucin is one of the best markets I have visited during many of my travels. If you need to purchase local produce, you can buy fish, meat, vegetables, cheeses etc - catered for everything! If you want to explore food and vin de rouge, there are plenty of places to chose from. Can spend a whole day eating and drinking.... More

There no reason to spend time by visiting the specific market. Is too small and dirty. Of course, in case you have never visited something like that it will be a good first experience for you.

For foreigners a visit to the Marche des Capucins will be extremely interesting. Not only for an insight of the local culture but also for the variety of shops, the cafes and the restaurants. If you wish you can do your errands but you can just enjoy the scenes from a cafe or a restaurant. For local people, le Marché... More
