If you ever find yourself wandering around Lyon, feeling a bit peckish and up for an adventure, then it's in your best interest to pop over to the Marché Saint-Antoine.

An open-air market that boasts local shoppers and farmers presenting their prized sowings.
Nibble as you navigate through rows of fragrant bouquets, all cozied right up along the Saône river.
Quite possibly worth a visit just for locations sake.

This one is open everyday of the week, except Mondays, from 6 in the morning until the early afternoon. Come hungry!

You'll rub elbows with the locals as they stock their pantries, contemplate wines to pair with their selections, and pile their findings into their totes.

A posy of wild flowers stood as a refreshing reminder that summer is on its way, despite this disagreeable weather.

We strolled a bit longer, taking it all in with deep gratitude, and wondered what it would be like to live in this ancient city and have the Marché Sainte-Antoine be a part of our weekly routine.

Get here early to get the pick of crop, bring cash and your appetite, it isn't rare that food trucks roll up and shill out sandwiches to curb your rumbling stomach!
