Craft Market

Authentic, handmade leather crafts, jewellery, sand sculptures and more are sold by the artists themselves on the waterfront. You can also have your portrait painted or buy a representation of La Rochelle. If you have no purchasing intention, this market is still a nice walk by day or night.


Shopping in La Rochelle's intimate Old town is a wonderful experience and you can find a large number of cute boutiques and craftsmen, nice antiques, jewellery stores, designer shops and of course all the usual retail chains. Les Halles is a very interesting and colourful indoor market, where you will find fresh food products, first-class fish and seafood as well as rare local and tasty goat cheeses. Also visit the Island of Ré for its open-air markets with local products and scrumptious seafood as well as many array of great shops.
