Markets: Côtes-d’Armor – Saint Brieuc


Named after a Welsh saint, St Brieuc is a large town by Irish standards and an average one by French standards with a population of 45,000 or so.

It’s by the sea and there are some extremely large and sandy beaches in this area that’s often not considered quite warm enough for people going on holiday to France. However, with average maximum temperatures around 24 degrees in summer, it is an area well worth exploring in summer time.

Meanwhile, there are the markets in the town. In all, four of them run right through the year.

Marché du Centreville. The city-centre open-air market that takes place from 080:30 to 13:00 every Wednesday and Saturday, spread out between the Place de la Résistance, Place du Chai and the Place du Martray. There are always flowers, fruit & veg and a whole host of local producers and manufacturers of food and sweet things.

The Marché de la Croix Saint-Lambert is the Sunday morning market from 09:00 to 13:00 at a car park (parking du centre commercial) on Rue Guillaume Apollinaire, selling food and clothing at bargain prices.

From Tuesday to Saturday inclusive, the main indoor market at Les Halles de la Grille is open from 08:00 to 13:30 and from 15:30 to 19:30. On Saturdays, the market is open without a lunch break and on Sundays and bank holidays, the market is a morning-only affair from 08:00 to 13:00.

La Foire Saint-Michel. The Saint-Michel Fair takes place over two days at the end of September on Place Saint-Michel, Parce des Promenades and Rue Lamennais. This becomes a flea market on the Sunday, running all day long or until the vendors have had enough.
