The market at Quimperlé

And I take you closer to me in neighboring dept 29 Finistére and the town of Quimperlé. Again to show you the nice market here in city center. One of the highlights of any visit to France me think.

The tradition of the Quimperlé market, in the Place Saint-Michel , in the upper town, has been going on for several centuries. Livestock, poultry and rabbits were traded along with all fresh produce. While it is always possible to find a vendor of poultry and chicks, cattle dealers have given way to a variety of shops. Food has a good place, but there are also plants and seedlings, and clothing shops.

This covered market, designed by Moreau brothers’ builders in 1886, was set up instead of a group of old unhealthy homes called “Petit quartier”, destroyed for reasons of hygiene and circulation. A century later, the building deteriorated. In 1998, a complete diagnosis concludes the need for a complete refurbishment. At the end of 2001, the halls were completely destroyed to be rebuilt identically.

They are open Friday mornings in Pl St Michel and Sunday mornings in Pl Hervo. Sunday they are open from 8h to 13h all year at Pl Hervo and Fridays 8h to 13h all year at Pl St Michel.

The city of Quimperlé not to be confuse with Quimper is a wonderful old world fortified inner city that is worth visiting and for the market and walls a must. The city has more on heritage here: City of Quimperle on heritage
