Marché Paysan d'Antigone
The peasant market of the Antigone, managed by the producers themselves has existed for 17 years. Each Sunday morning the avenue Samuel-Champlain gives a special warm atmosphere and the stall holders have a vast range of quality products: seasonal fruits and vegetables alongside the cafés de Rene, the snails, the live trout and fine wines.

Marché des Arceaux
The Arceaux market is at the foot of the arches of the aqueduct which dates from 1765. A grand setting in a lively and busy area of Montpellier which is full of locals and makes this an authentic market. Situated along the boulevard des Arceaux, it's THE big market and one of the most popular of the city. Open Tuesdays and Saturdays. attracting large numbers, particularly those interested in the organic producers of the area.

Halles Castellane
It's impossible to walk along the rue de la Loge and miss this market. Recently renovated, Les Halles Castellane is somewhere that remains unchanged in the long life of Montpellier.
Quality produce, somewhere to have a drink and a small restaurant for those who like to eat and drink well.
