Covered Farmers Market in Colmar

Where is the covered farmer's market in Colmar? Is it every day or only on Saturdays?

There is a covered market in Colmar from Tuesday to Saturday inclusive in the old town in the centre of Petite Venise in the building called LES HALLES. It contains food stalls but some of the stalls are simply an extra outlet for quality shops elsewhere in Colmar. However it is worth a visit.

Colmar has an open air market in this area with 'real' farmers' stalls on a Thursday morning. There is also a textile market on a Saturday afternoon based in the Cathedral square and the Dominicains square. On Saturday morning there is a large open-air market around the church of St Joseph, just west of the town centre, off the rue d'Ingersheim.

I know that a lot of our American visitors enjoy farmers' markets ... which I have revelled in when I visited the US. The market in Colmar is perhaps a bit less 'spontaneous' than some of those I visited in Pennsylvania and Vermont as it is in purpose-adapted premises, but the quality is high and there are plenty of local foodstuffs, botth Alsacian and European to enjoy.
