From sud de france:240x245-Halles-Narbonne-N125_focus_events

Much more than a market, Les Halles of Narbonne is one of the nerve centers of the city. Built in 1901, this vast market hall is still active and more animated than ever before. Its metal framework shelters nearly seventy food businesses: charcutiers, butchers, pastry-makers, bars, greengrocers, and restaurants, including the storied “Chez Bébelle.” This unique gathering place is completely a part of local culture. In the aisles between the stalls, they say that the market has a soul. A warm, bustling spirit. And 2,800 square metres of enticing fragrances – spices, olives, fresh vegetables, sausage, even – at the right moment, bien sûr –pastis. The people of Narbonne come to Les Halles to do their marketing, of course, but also to stroll and get together with friends. A delightful place, open 365 days a year, where you’ll enjoy letting time go by …
