On weekends, local gourmands crowd this covered food market to stock up on high-quality Lyonnais specialties: sausage-filled brioche, Cervelle de Canut cream cheese, and marzipan coussins de Lyon (cushions carried by the Aldermen during the 1643 Plague), as well as soups and quenelles à brochet (creamed pike) from Giraudet. Numerous cafes offer a well-priced lunch.
