    Marché de Meylan

    by JLBG Written Apr 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Meylan has an open-air market every morning except Monday. It takes place on "Place de la Louisiane" except on Thursdays when it is in another district, the "Buclos" with the same booths. There are local producers, vegetables, fruits, milk and cheese, bread, a butcher, a fish monger and others. On Thursdays afternoon, there is a famous organic market, the only one in the area, with customers coming from 50-60 km around.

    Around the Zirst (now Inovallée) buildings designed for housing are always low : three or four levels as here. They are close to the Inovallée companies which allows workers to either walk, for the most fortunate, or ride work on bicycle. Few are those who have to drive their car to work ! Isn't that better than to live in Paris ? Haha !

    Gardens

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This photo shows the same garden, close to the town hall but with the Vercors massif in the background. Some gardeners prefer to have flowers instead of vegetables.
    The highest mountain is the Moucherotte. On the right to the Moucherotte, a rocky shelf called "les Trois Pucelles" (the three maids or better the Three Virgins). They were called that way because they were difficult to climb upon. On the right to the "Trois Pucelles", in the shade, is the ski jump built for the Olympics and now abandoned as it was too expensive to keep it in condition.

    Gardens

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In three parts of Meylan, plots of land have been kept and divided into very small gardens that are rented to citizens that want to have a few square meters for fresh parsley, chives, salads or tomatoes. It is always very small, from 10 to 50 square meters, but that allows citizens living in apartments to remain in touch with nature.
    On this photo, a part of the garden close to the town hall with the Saint Eynard in the background.
