Smell Biarritz-Pays

The covered market

Tempting aromas galore! Close to the old town, Biarritz (External link)’s covered food market, Les Halles, is a great place to wander and feast your eyes (and nose) on an array of excellent-quality fish and seafood, meat, cheeses, charcuterie and bread. There’s also great variety of fruit and vegetables here, plus fresh truffles and French patisserie. Buy delicious items for your picnic at affordable prices – or simply educated yourself in the Basque country’s local produce.
