Victor Augagneur Market, Lyon

Marché des Quais du Rhône Victor Augagneur (Victor Augagneur Market) is a narrow and densely packed marketplace stretched along the river Rhône between Pont de la Guillotière to Pont Wilson in Lyon.

In this riverside market you can find pretty much everything, from fresh fruit and veggies to cheese, wine and vast selections of olives. There are several stands specialized in regional and organic products. Meat lovers are not likely to leave this place empty-handed either.

The fans of Levantine cuisine, in particular, will find themselves in for a great treat amid the stalls laden with Lebanese couscous salads, tabbouleh, börek and other Middle Eastern delicacies. Adding to these delectable riches is the picturesque view of the Rhône dominated by the Grand Hôtel Dieu.

A leisurely stroll to this major food address will appeal to those who appreciate the sights, smells and tastes all the same. Early in a week, the market is just a few stands, but starting from Thursday afternoon and even more so during weekend, the stalls become numerous, reaching between 50 and 100+ on a Sunday morning.

Opening Hours:
Tuesday and Wednesday from 6am to 12.30pm;
Thursday from 6am to 12.30pm, and from 2pm to 8pm;
Friday to Sunday from 6am to 1.30pm
