Gourmandise locale, Villa Maïa Hôtel 5 étoiles de luxe à Lyon

Do you love good food? Yes! But it has to be local.

Gluttony is a truly sweet sin in Lyon. One of the oldest food markets in France is a stone’s throw away from my new home. With my Leica camera slung around me, I set off on my stroll along the quays of the Saône where the famous Saint Antoine market is located. My first head to head with a vendor of tripe, and my camera film and I are propelled into the Middle Ages. Rest assured, there are also plenty of pastry chefs with their tasty pralines, florists with their peonies and peaches grown on the vine by market gardeners. Stall after stall, the colours are imprinted on my film roll, and my basket fills up. I no longer know what to choose from all the local producers who have been delighting Lyon’s residents for such a long time. The Saint Antoine market is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
