After we visited Petite Venice, we came upon the covered permanent market in Colmar. Going to the market is always a favorite thing for us to do when we are traveling.
This structure was built in 1865, with a metal framework and bricks. This market hall is well laid out, with wide aisles, and is kept very clean.
There are about 20 merchants selling everything - meats, fish, poultry cheese, fruits, vegetable, deli meats, pastry, breads, condiments - that you would look to buy in a French market. In the corner locations, there is a little cafe or a bar for a short stop, to have a cup or coffee or a beer.
Organic dairy products from the local farms
This holiday season, there are a few stalls dedicated to carrying Christmas decorating essentials and gift packages.
A quick stop here was all we needed to have a break. We picked up some goodies and beverages for our afternoon snacks, and continued on our Christmas market tour.
