From there, you can walk to the (Place Saint-Michel), a weekly flea market; along your walk, pop into the rug shops that have a Middle Eastern influence. At the marché, you will find a variety of vendors; some selling antiques, and some selling things you probably don’t need. The square is surrounded by other antique shops - be sure to check out (20-22 rue des Allamandiers). If you feel famished from all your shopping, swing by 51 rue des Faures). They have some of the best baguettes and croissants in town. You can grab the B Tram from the Porte de Bourgogne to Chartrons, where the (Quai des Chartrons) runs along the river. This marché is the typical food and produce market that you picture when you think of France. This is where I get most of my produce, a few cheeses, fresh bread, and a roasted chicken, almost weekly.
I hope you enjoyed this itinerary. The city is very walkable. I often ride my bike or use public transport, which is quite user-friendly. Have a wonderful time in Bordeaux. Au revoir!
