During the fall season, when mountains of pumpkins colorfully invade the stalls everywhere, I enjoy going to the Farmer's Market in town...
In Geneva, there's nearly one fruit and vegetable markets in every quarter or village (see info), but my favorite one is situated in Rive, on the Boulevard Helvétique (see map). Every time I go there, I get into a trance and walk like a robot down the aisles, as if drugged by all the marvelous smells and beautiful visions!
In that place, you'll find an outdoor market which takes place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 6am to 1pm and a covered one called "Les Halles De Rive" which is opened six days a week. There, you can buy everything you are looking for: fish, meat, cheese, delicatessen products, bread, vegetables, fruits, etc... It's a paradise, the Mecca of gourmet food!
In 2006, I had already blogged about both markets, so if you are interested in learning more about them, please check out those links:
