Shops and markets

Les Halles Sainte-Claire

One way to truly get to know a city is to try its local specialities and to meet its regional producers. And when it comes to doing so in Grenoble, there is only one place to head: Les Halles Sainte-Claire, a market located in the city's historic centre!

Plans for Les Halles Sainte-Claire were drawn up in 1874, and followed the template established some years earlier in Paris with the construction of Les Halles Baltard (a market hall similarly built from a combination of cast iron, glass and stone).

The market in Grenoble is made up of around 20 stalls and is open every morning from Tuesday to Sunday. Local producers include bakers, greengrocers, butchers, poultry sellers, fishmongers, cheesemongers, wine and spirits specialists, and even florists. With a selection of stalls like that on offer, there really is something for everyone!

Grenoble's tourist office regularly takes tasting tours to Les Halles Sainte-Claire, in partnership with the producers!
The schedule of these tasting sessions varies week-on-week. It is possible to consult the dates available and book online at the official website of the Grenoble tourist office.

Full price: €10
Reduced price: €8
Free for children under 5

Opening hours:  Tues to Sunday, 7am - 1pm

Address: Les Halles Sainte-Claire, 19 place Sainte-Claire 38000 Grenoble

Chocolatier Thierry Court

Combining tradition with innovation, master chocolatier Thierry Court puts every ounce of his expertise and creativity at the service of food lovers, through his 100% home-made creations.

Thierry Court selects only the finest raw cocoa, and then experiments with flavours and textures in his laboratory until he finds the perfect balance.

Macaroons are another of Thierry Court’s great specialities, handmade and available in a wide range of flavours.
Pastries, confectionaries, chocolates, truffles, pralines, handmade spreads… Thierry Court’s shop is one for the food lovers, a real treat for the eyes and tastebuds alike.

This chocolate maker loves to work with and showcase regional produce. He is notably behind the creation of the Grenoisine, a delicious handmade brioche with honey and caramelised nuts, well on its way to becoming the regional speciality!

Specially for our Grenoble hotel, the chocolate maker has devised a wonderful spread and sticks of marshmallows, both of which will of course be available for guests to purchase in the hotel boutique.

Opening hours:
Tues to Saturday: 09:30am - 7pm

Address: 22, rue de la Poste, 38000 Grenoble
