Les Halles de Lyon–Paul BocuseNamed for Paul Bocuse—a towering figure in French gastronomy and a founder of nouvelle cuisine—this lush, gourmet market is a must-visit for anyone interested in food and cooking. Housed in the same glass-and-cast-iron building since its founding in 1859, Les Halles boasts 50 separate vendors, selling everything from fresh meat, produce, and bread to fine cheeses, chocolate pastries, and traditional Lyonnaise dumplings. Stock up on groceries, then partake of the local bounty at one of the sit-down counters, where you can slurp freshly shucked oysters or sip a crisp Bourgogne Blanc.
