marchés annecy

Whether you're on a camping holiday in Annecy, in the department of Haute-Savoie in eastern France, or just passing through for a day, Annecy's markets are the place to discover the town's atmosphere and meet the locals. Located in the town centre or adjacent districts, these markets give you the chance to sample local specialities such as Reblochon cheese, Savoy tomme, charcuterie, good chocolate, seasonal fruit and vegetables, mountain honeys, cakes and doughnuts.

Annecy's old town market

The old town market is the liveliest and most popular Annecy market in Savoie. Opinions are unanimous. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful markets in Haute-Savoie. Its warm atmosphere makes you want to stroll for hours through the narrow streets and arcades of the district, stopping at every stall where regional specialities and local produce make your mouth water. You can also stop off at the terrace of a local café and simply enjoy the atmosphere and the events taking place there. The old town market takes place on rue Sainte-Claire and in the streets of the old town on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays from 7am to 1pm, all year round. On Tuesdays, the market is food-only, with a special focus on local produce. On Fridays and Sundays, it expands to the Quais de l'Évêché with clothing, books and local crafts.
