A little tour of the covered canal market in Mulhouse

The market of the Covered Canal of Mulhouse is a huge market taking place in Mulhouse on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday all day long. It is the largest market in eastern France, and one of the largest in the country! You can see it by visiting it: it is impressive. The market of Mulhouse is organized in 3 parts: the covered hall houses products such as meat, fish, cheese, bread, tea and coffee, the fruit and vegetables are located outside the hall and finally the part dedicated to textiles and accessories is located in the continuity.

Good to know, the fruit and vegetable stands from local producers are on the right side of the market (when you have the hall at your back). Otherwise, what’s the point of going to the market? Some stands are no better than supermarkets, so be careful…

The Mulhouse market also offers a small catering service allowing visitors not only to do their shopping but also to have a bite to eat at the market. I love this kind of atmosphere, very friendly and representative of what a French market is and of the cosmopolitan character of Mulhouse. For example, you can opt for a cheese platter at the excellent Fromagerie Saint-Nicolas, or for a vegan lunch at Food Link.

I liked

  • Huge market with lots of choices
  • Open all day
  • Cosmopolitan atmosphere

I liked less

  • Some stands are not qualitative: keep an eye out!
