Indoor and outdoor markets are numerous in Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole
TRENDY AND GOURMET
Marché du Lez is a creative hotspot, with antiques’ sellers, caterers, a farmers’ market on Saturday mornings, a well-being section, a DJ school and start-up companies. Located in former industrial and farming premises on the banks of the Lez since 2016, next to the Port-Marianne district, this area has been designed for sociability and enjoyment.
“We often organise events, pop-up markets, jazz concerts, private evenings. It's free and open to all”, specifies Camille Cattan, organiser.
Caterers propose fresh and seasonal products: Le Terminal#1, run by famous chefs Jacques and Laurent Pourcel, La Baraquette, which offers gourmet food from the market and is also a grocery store, and lastly La Cachette, which opens onto the River Lez and concocts Mediterranean food over a traditional wood fire.
As for the antiques’ market, a 500 m2 space is given over to the passion of bargaining. This antiques’ market is open 6 days a week, from 10am to 7pm.
On Friday nights in summer, singing and dancing takes place, with antiques’ sellers, producers and traders from Marché du Lez.
