Inaugurated on 9 November 2017, the Bacalan market halls opened their doors to the general public in Bordeaux showing off a remarkable wooden architecture and a large variety of producers and merchants to energise the Bacalan district.
The Bacalan district has seen its population double in recent years. In view of this situation, it was decided to create an appropriate local retail offer. This is how the Bacalan market halls project was born.
A beautiful and imposing wooden roof, visible from far, where one can find fresh and local products. Not far from the new Chaban-Delmas bridge and facing the prestigious Cité du Vin, the halls are strategically located and attract many visitors.
Under the 1000 m2, about twenty tradesmen gather to promote their products and share their know-how. The Bacalan market halls are therefore home to butcher’s shops, cheese factories, fish shops, wine merchants, bakers, poultry and other catering professions. All the gastronomy of the South-West is in the spotlight!
The aim is to offer good quality local products, 85% of the products coming from the South-West. A total of 23 stalls can be found at the covered market halls to delight the residents and any tourists passing through the Bordeaux metropolis.
A large catering area divided into three zones also allows visitors to eat and drink on site. There is a counter to enjoy an aperitif or a tasting, the brewery offers lunch and dinner and finally a coffee shop invites you to a relaxing break. Everything is arranged to allow you to have a good time while shopping.
