Marché Beaux-Arts

Market in Besançon

This covered food market showcases cheese, charcuterie, fruit and veg from around the Jura. It's a bustling, workaday place where locals do their shopping, lined with butchers, fishmongers and deli produce like dried mushrooms. If you aren't self-catering, you can grab Vietnamese spring rolls, wedges of cheese and organic ciders to go.

The market has a lively outdoor extension on Wednesday morning, Friday morning and Saturday, where you can buy anything from pink garlic to cheap socks.
