Mulhouse marketcolours and flavours from around the world

Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, the city comes alive at Mulhouse market, the biggest in north-east France. More than a “must-see”, the market is a unique experience where all your senses will be awakened.
Over 300 stalls - you can find (almost) everything at the market!

Over 300 stalls - you can find (almost) everything at the market!

Three times a week at the Quai de la Cloche, Mulhouse market brings together two very different, yet complementary, worlds.

On one side, textiles and bric-a-brac, the land of colourful fabrics, bags of all shapes and sizes, makeup, crockery and so on.

On the other, foodstuffs and gardening: fruit & vegetables; meat & fish; wines & cheeses; flowers & spices; specialties from Alsace, Italy and the rest of the world. Delights to be enjoyed without moderation.

What do they have in common? An abundance of choice, friendly stallholders, a variety of quality products, customer loyalty.

It’s good to stroll amongst the stalls, indoors or outdoors. Indulge yourself ☺.

Experience the market like a true local

Saturday morning is the best time to visit the market. Here are some tips:

8.30: arrival at the market for a look around the haberdashery stalls to choose a fabric for a new dress or a new case for your phone.

9.00: head over to the food stalls and stroll among them in search of local farmers selling their home-grown tomatoes or damsons from their orchards.

9.30am: need to stock up on vegetables? Exotic fruits? The stallholders in the centre of the market will have everything you need.

10.00: time for a break. Enter the covered market for a coffee at the bar and mingle with traders and other customers.

10.30am: it’s time to choose your cheeses, fish and antipasti, some Moroccan biscuits or spices. Everything’s there! Maybe you’d like to try your hand at cooking a traditional recipe from Alsace? There are plenty of local delicatessens all waiting for you to taste their home-made specialities.

12.00am: finished your shopping? Why not treat yourself to authentic Sauerkraut at the ‘Aux Halles du Marché’ restaurant? Or try Chicken Yassa from one of the outdoor food trucks to eat on-the-go. And wash it all down with a taste of the wine merchant’s ‘Choice of the day’!

3 reasons to visit the Market

Travel the world without setting a foot outside Mulhouse!

Products to suit all budgets

Mulhouse market has no airs and graces. There’s something there for everyone - organic or non-organic products, rare or everyday cheeses, delicate fish or a choice of sausages, locally grown strawberries or mangoes from the other side of the world. It makes no difference. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll have the pleasure of leaving with a bag full of wonderful produce and a smile on your face.

The market isn’t for tourists

Or rather, you won’t be a tourist in the market because you will live a unique experience. You will see residents and retailers going about their day-to-day life, you’ll chat with other customers as you queue and who knows, you might even get the recipe for fleischschnackas or your first lesson in the local dialect.
