Les Halles

Les Halles in Nimes is perfect for a stroll, some food or just a browse. This market hall features a variety of different stalls and has an abundance of delicacies and rare ingredients on offer, everything from fruits and vegetables to bread and cheese, meat and fish.


There are several well-known vineyards in the area, including Château Mourgues de Gres. The best place to sample and buy local wine is at the Les Cave du 41 wine shop on 41 rue Emile Jamais. La Vinothèque on 18 rue Jean Reboul is another good wine merchant. As in so many other French towns and cities, the indoor food market (on rue General Perrier), is worth a visit. This street, together with rue des Marchands and pedestrian streets in the Old Town such as rue de l’Aspic and rue de la Madeleine, form the bulk of the shopping areas. The latter has many expensive fashion stores.
