Summer is of course the best time for fresh stone fruits, melons and vegetables. But any time of year is a great time to visit this covered fresh market, a Bordelais institution.
If you go at mealtime or during the afternoon when an afternoon snack is in order, be sure to find the stalls serving fresh plates of oysters, shrimp and other seafood delicacies. They’re served with a glass of chilled wine and fresh, crusty French baguette. That alone is worth the trek to this Quartier St. Michel neck of the woods in Bordeaux’s city center.
