An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Saturday, repeating indefinitely
Every Saturday at the “Place du Mont Blanc” you can enjoy the Chamonix Town Saturday Market. Shopping for local produce as well as items for the home and clothing, under the gaze of the fabulous mountains. Here you can find all sorts of treats from local and regional producers, fresh fruits, seasonal vegetables, cheeses and charcuterie. Also, there are many craft stalls featuring artisan products, clothes and shoes.
Like many markets, it is not just a commercial event, it gets highly social! The nearby bars and cafe’s bustle with activity. This vibrant market square enjoys the hustle and bustle of people milling around, interacting with the local, friendly vendors, who are introducing their very own produce. There are delicious eateries, with possibly some of the best crepes ever tasted! The market is divided between food produce and goods and garments and on a sunny morning, there is probably no better way to spend time getting to know this quaint French market town. In our experience it is best to get there early, as after 12:30 it starts to close down.

This large market covers the Place du Mont Blanc and sometimes runs along Rue Whymper as well. Its is easy to find, but for orientation it is opposite the Hotel Alpina, just off the Sanglard sports roundabout, before the pedestrianised zone.
It’s not far from the train station or if you are driving, there is a car park on the Place roundabout or free parking slightly further away at “Les Planards”. To get around town with your shopping, use the free and easy “Le Mulet” – a free shuttle bus that takes you around and through the centralised streets from the South end of Les Praz to Chamonix Sud.
So if you are in Chamonix on a Saturday, no trip is complete without visiting the market!
