Rue de Romont….PEOPLE PLACE...
I ventured down this street on a Wednesday during a visit in July of 2010 and it was a “sea” of people. A” temporary” market was set up selling fruits and vegetables, fresh breads, flowers, cheeses, and odds and ends.
Rue de Romont is a PEDESTRIAN only street and there are no cars or vehicles allowed here. It’s easily accessed from the train station and can easily be incorporated in a walking itinerary on a route to get you to the Old Town close to the river.
Wednesday and Saturday mornings there is a Farmers Market that operates here but other times you will find the street lined with shops and a few small cafes. It’s a GREAT spot to kick back, enjoy a coffee and watch the comings and goings of some of the people that live here. The market runs only until mid day if you’re interested in seeing this or making purchases.
It was a busy spot and many people were out and about shopping for fresh foods, it was a kind of party like atmosphere with some street musicians adding to the “feeling”. See the attached video of a street musician if you like.
If you’re interested in fresh vegetables or fruit or bread and you’re staying downtown or passing through on your way to or from the train station make this a stopover on your walk about town
