One of the great outdoor markets. If you are there on a Saturday it is a must. Plan to buy your picnic. It is almost entirely locals buying their fresh foods for the week, but the vendors were welcoming to tourists and quick to use their English if needed. The cheese stalls are fantastic as are the charcuterie stalls. It is also a good place to buy cuisine souvenirs like special spices or fois gras.

By nature markets attract crowds but at this one the "locals" outnumbered us tourists. The usual wide variety of items on display and an Ideal place for topping up on our fruit supply.
When we were there a major revamp was being completed on one of the covered sections making it more crowded and therefore more difficult to walk around.

We were in Rennes on a Saturday morning after a visit to Mont St Michel and prior to flying to London.

We walked around the historic old town and paid a visit to the Saturday market at Marche des Lices. There were plenty of vendors selling fruits, vegetables, wines, cheese - basically everything.

It also gave us an opportunity to try the famous Galette Saucisse (Sausage Crepe) for 2.30 euros. The sausage was good but not great. German sausages were far superior and the crepe we had in Cognac was also much better. However, the market is interesting and we wished we could try all the fruits and veggies.

This is the best market in the city of Rennes for fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and meat. It is roughly divided into fruit and vegetables stalls along the road that runs from the bottom to the top of the market. Fresh fish stalls are also in the open part as are stalls selling street food. There are 2 covered markets where you can buy meat, cheese, bread and more. The great thing about Les Lices is the variety of fresh produce that you will find and the authentic farmers who go there. It is quite expensive (you are paying to get good quality food) but if you shop carefully you will find some good prices. Make sure you get there early. The market is only open Saturday mornings!

I love markets. I’ve been to many of them and this was by far the best one I’ve ever been to. There is so much to see inside and outside. If you are staying somewhere in Rennes where you can cook then you gotta stop here to get all your fruits, veggies, cheeses and meats! We were staying in a hotel and I was so sad we could not do this. Instead we bought a bottle of cidre, a small slice of cheese, a carton of strawberries and some delicious food truck snacks and had a grand lunch. It’s busy but that’s because it’s worth it!

We love French markets and often plan our travels around the days markets are open. This covered market is one of the best and is filled with local specialties (think Marche Aligre in Paris, the Marche in Lourdes, and many others). We found kounign amann, caramel with local sea salt, tisane, herbs, bread, and pate. On Saturday, this indoor market is surrounded by an enormous outdoor market with all types of food and flowers. I think the best things are however in the indoor market.

If you are living or visiting near Rennes, I will highly recommend visit the Marché des Lices on Saturday morning.

Every Saturday morning this quiet square is transformed into this lively and colourful food market, where you can find local fresh produce, meat, cheese, seafood and food stalls.

There are two indoor buildings where they sell fresh meat in one and the other is a mixture of various products. The outdoor areas are divided into 4 main sections: fruits and vegetables, fresh Seafoods, food stalls and flowers stalls right at the end.

Tips when visiting the Marché des Lices:

1.I would suggest to go early as they run out of parking space quickly. My husband and I had to go around several times to find parking near the river.

2.Bring your own carrier bag, as they won't have bags for you.

3.Bring cash, as it is a market they only accept cash.

4. As far as I know, this market is open whether it rains or shine. As last time we went it was drizzling, but everything was open as usual.

How to be in rennes. And avoid this place !!!:-)
Opened and closed market. All french, local, fresh and home made available, which can be bought or eaten at a bar around the market
When it is sunny (several time per day in our area), people are outside, with drinks.
Pleasant place (of course, do not expect to be a calm :-))
