The Recollets market
“This is where the monks used to grow vegetables in the garden adjoining the convent. “
In the early 19th century, the marché des Récollets was built on the place des Grands Hommes. Its name comes from the Récollets convent that occupied the premises more than three centuries ago. Over the years, the market has become one of the city’s most popular, known for its friendly atmosphere and fresh produce. Today, it’s still a place where people meet, trade, and do business.
