Les Halles Paul Bocuse, the gourmet village of Lyon

Legendary institution for foodies, unavoidable crossroads of taste and flavors, international reference for gourmets, Les Halles Paul Bocuse are one of the most emblematic symbols of the French and Lyon gastronomic excellence.

This indoor food market gathers today some sixty merchants and their outstanding products. The renowned cheeses of la Mère Richard or Maréchal, the cured meat of Colette Sibilia or Gast, the unique meat of the butcher Maurice Trolliet, or the famous culinary specialties of Sève or Bahadourian…

Filmed in immersion over several seasons, this documentary offers a vibrant discovery of Les Halles Paul Bocuse. This “gastronomic stomach” attracts both the “bourgeois” and modest people. Conservatory of bourgeois cuisine for some, outline of popular cuisine for others. But for all, a well-established territory, both a delicious village and a high standing place for the taste buds and for encounters.
