Great selection of foods and drinks

Whilst the prices are expensive, the assortment of food and drink at the different vendors is wonderful. Plus, a number speak English which helps!

The only thing I regret of this market is that its not right beside home; otherwise I would do all my shopping here! Great meat, fish and cheese sellers and also tapas and other foods and cafes. Not a beautiful market, but definitely a lively one

A busy buzz half open air market selling local (bio) products; meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit, cheese, spices, bread, wine and ethnic cuisine e.g. Reunion, Chinese, Italian, Mediterranean, Basque. There are counters/bars/tables where you can take a bite or lunch and wine. Do not expect high end cleanliness (floor can be wet and smelly), it's a local market place and the... More

Capucin is one of the best markets I have visited during many of my travels. If you need to purchase local produce, you can buy fish, meat, vegetables, cheeses etc - catered for everything! If you want to explore food and vin de rouge, there are plenty of places to chose from. Can spend a whole day eating and drinking.... More

There no reason to spend time by visiting the specific market. Is too small and dirty. Of course, in case you have never visited something like that it will be a good first experience for you.

For foreigners a visit to the Marche des Capucins will be extremely interesting. Not only for an insight of the local culture but also for the variety of shops, the cafes and the restaurants. If you wish you can do your errands but you can just enjoy the scenes from a cafe or a restaurant. For local people, le Marché... More

We visited the Marche des Capucins on a Saturday, when it was in full swing, with all the Bordelaise doing their weekend shopping. It is a lively, colourful market with an amazing variety of fruits, vegetables, meats and charcuterie, breads, pastries, cheeses, spices, flowers and cafes. One could spend hours here. There are some outdoor stalls as well with clothing... More

A great spot. We enjoyed this market twice. The fruit and produce were fresh, as well the baked goods. We enjoyed cured meats, and some nice soft cheeses from here too. All prices were really good.

This major market in Bordeaux is open in the mornings and is well worth a visit. You can buy almost any kind of fresh food and it's an adventure to see what special item you can locate. Good Stop!

We visited this market several times last year, but I appreciate it more and like it a lot more this year. Not at all a glitzy upscale market, more approachable and affordable than some Les Halles in other urban centres. Great place for lunch....be sure to try Chez Jean Mi. Quiet and somewhat forlorn and subdued on Tuesdays, but by... More
