Morning at the market

The Marche des Lices in Rennes is one of Brittany's best food markets and the third largest in France. It's had plenty of time to perfect things, though: it dates back to 1622.

I've visited Rennes, while spending Christmas with friends nearby, but missed out on the famous market - so delighted to read/see more (eg unaware it has been running since 17th cent). I lived in la rue Mouffetard during my Paris stint - an even older market, there, albeit more of a series of shops now. Markets + food = two of my favourite things ... many thanks!
PS But, of course, le Marché des Lices simply cannot compete with le Cours Saleya (even though the latter's younger) ;-)!
PPS I would say that, wouldn't I?

Thank you! I'd love to visit the Cours Saleya: one of the things I love about French markets is the way they all vary so much. I can never resist a regional speciality!
