Food markets and rock in the city!

Slow food tour at Rennes farmers market

Following the spirit of the Slow Food association “Rennes top Gallo” that promotes good, clean and balanced eating, the chefs from Rennes in­vite visitors to join them for a gourmet walk of Rennes ‘Marché des Lices’ farmers market.

The ‘Marché des Lices’ is one of France’s finest far­mers market and the second largest in France. Every Saturdays, more than 300 producers from all over the region display their wares on their colorful stalls on the picturesque square of the same name.

Wander the market, and taste Breton specialties. Local producers love to share their passion for their work and they’ll introduce you to their specialty (ci­der, cheese, veggies...).

Before leaving the market, make sure you bow to local tradition and enjoy a galette-saucisse (sausage wrapped in a buckwheat pancake) or a galette com­plète (buckwheat pancake filled with ham, cheese, and egg).

First food market in Rennes labeled Sunday in Rennes, the “Marché à manger” gathers several thousand people in the heart of the Halles Centrales of Rennes 4 times a year. Since the first edition in July 2016, more than thirty chefs have succeeded each other. Live cooking, dishes for less than 8 €, meeting with the chefs, large convivial tables: everyone is welcome to discover the richness of local gastronomy, in a relaxed atmosphere.
