Farmers Market
“A staple of the Croix-Rousse historic neighborhood, the Croix-Rousse food market has everything to cater for your tastebuds and nosetrils. Definitely the best place to shop for the next couple of meals, it offers fresh fish, fresh meat, fresh fuits and vegetables, and plenty of other amazing French delicacies. Best to go on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Plenty of cafés, bars and shops around to take a rest and soak up the atmosphere. Tuesdays to Sundays, 6am to 1pm.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“A 5 ou 7 minutes à pieds de chez moi, juste à côté du Métro D. Rapport qualité - prix tout à fait honorable. A noter que je conseille celui-ci place Valmy, et non pas par exemple celui des Cordeliers qui est en revanche très cher. 8H30 - 21H tous les jours sauf Dimanche (matin seulement 09H - 12H45).”
