Our region is rich in such markets, whose lively and sometimes colourful life and merchants full of personality is one aspect for tourists to discover.

Beer, cider, foie gras, cheese, beekeeping products, cured meats, spirits, wine, fruit and vegetables, milk, meat and other Normandy products make up the bulk of the offer of all the markets we’ve mentioned.

La Halle au Blé de Gonneville la Mallet


In this shopping town with its many shops, Place Guy de Maupassant attracts many visitors on Wednesday mornings for the traditional market which has been going on since 1633. In addition to its stallholders, don’t forget the small producers gathered under the Halle au Blé, one of the few still existing in the region and its Hallettes. 


In Etretat, on the squares surrounding the covered market, Thursday morning is market day. Normandy gastronomy is based on its four main local products: apples, milk, meat and seafood.

Depending on the season, on the stalls you’ll find sole, bass, mackerel and, as soon as the first cold weather arrives, herring and scallops.

Montivilliers market on Thursday mornings takes place in Place de l’Abbaye and nearby the pedestrianised Rue Gambetta. It extends to Place Raoul Ancel and Place Saint-Philibert. About a hundred retailers offer shoppers fruit, vegetables, farm products, cold meats as well as clothing, shoes and even jewellery… A stop at the market allows tourists to visit the abbey (classified as a historic monument) to discover its

Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Completely restored in 2000, located in the heart of the city, during the day, it offers an original historical tour of the abbey buildings. Dating back to the high Middle Ages, this event is a must.

On Friday morning, Thiers market (44 stalls) is composed of more than 60% food stalls with a majority of fruit and vegetable vendors, including some local producers. Sellers of dairy products, poultry, fish, meat, cold meats and oysters are the market’s trump card. A crêpe seller and baker complete the range of products on offer. Highly original, you might even meet a reupholsterer. In Bléville, food products far outweigh flowers, gifts, gadgets, textiles, leather goods, etc. There is a confectionery stand and a herbal tea plant vendor.

Notice to market fans! On the 43 stalls of the Sainte Cécile market, local producers occupy a prominent place. Les Halles market on Sunday morning is also a place to meet friends for a coffee on one of the many terraces that open onto the square. In addition to the standard offer, you can buy small dishes prepared by Caribbean, Italian and other caterers.


Since 1910, Harfleur’s Sunday morning market has been a real institution. Renowned throughout the town, it is a place of conviviality, exchange and diversity of products, bringing together a hundred or so stall owners. Located in the town centre (from Place Victor Hugo to Place d’Armes via Rue Jehan de Grouchy), it’s surrounded by car parks allowing easy, pleasant access via the various calmed roads built in recent years.
