Les Halles de Lyon - Paul Bocuse, the art of eating well

Considered 'the belly of Lyon', the covered market symbolises 'the two secrets of success: quality and creativity' according to Paul Bocuse, after whom they are now named.

Going back in history to the 19th century, the market was originally located on the Place des Cordeliers for more than 100 years, but the demands of a modern society led the mayor, Louis Pradel, to update and move it to a district that was undergoing renovation, La Part Dieu. Inaugurated in 1971, they were renovated in 2006 and now open up to the city with a huge glass wall looking out to the Cours Lafayette.

Les Halles hosts more than 50 oyster shuckers, cheese makers, bakers, pastry chefs, market gardeners, and sausage makers, as well as butchers, fishmongers, caterers, wine merchants, and restaurateurs, all worthy representatives of Lyon's gastronomic expertise.

Although chef Bocuse passed away aged 91 in January 2018, some of his suppliers and their wares are still present. There are still the famous cheeses of Mere Richard and Maréchal there, for example, along with the fishmonger Pupier, cold cuts from Colette Sibilia and Gast, Richard Sève's famous chocolates and Bahadourian dried fruits.
