The Marché des Capucins is a famous market, and as I love marketplaces, I thought to mention this one for those who don’t already know about it. You can find everything there from clothes to cheese, bread and Spanish charcuterie, BUT it is best known for the freshest shellfish and seafood, as well as the best quality meat, game, etc…
What I love, is to go on the weekend and have some fresh, good quality, local oysters at ” chez Jean-Mi” with some excellent Entre-deux-Mers white wine. Be aware as it might be…crowded!
It is located at Place des Capucins, near Place de la Victoire. The market is easily reachable by car, tramway or bicycle as I do most of the time.
Here is a recipe I created with some organic, seasonal, locally grown veggies from the Capucins :
