One of the city's most popular markets, on the shores of the Saône River
Art within everyone's reach
You could say this market is unique in Europe as much for its content as its size. Le Marché de la Création is truly a bohemian institution in Lyon, a street market dating back to 1979 that's become something of a tourist attraction in its own right. With more than 100 artists participating, the market specialises in highly creative and unusual art work - sketches, paintings, sculptures, and decorative items, but also big, extravagant structures made with found materials. Most of it, furthermore, is very accessible to most budgets. It's held Sunday mornings on the banks of the Saône River near the Marché des Bouquinistes. Even if you don't buy, come for a look - it's quite an experience.
