Plaine de Plainpalais

A little of everything.

Plaine de Plainpalais is an area where, practically everyday you can wander among its stalls and buy local products. This traditional open-air market attracts the expert and the curious alike, in search for that object they didn't expect to find. Surrounded by the Boulevard Georges-Favon and the Avenue Henri Dunant, on Tuesdays and Fridays the stall keepers offer fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, wine, Swiss cheese and other local specialities. On those same days you can also find books, lithographies and postcards. In addition to this, on Wednesdays, Saturdays and the first Sunday of the month there is a market selling antiquities, paintings, records and music. Simultaneously, the Place de la Fusterie, the most versatile place in the city, on Wednesdays and Saturdays hosts a food market, while on Thursday the market offers local crafts, candles and other similar objects. If you come before Christmas, it becomes the Noel market, selling Christmas-themed decoration items.
