An independent guide to Val Thorens
The market in Val Thorens takes place in Grand Rue every Tuesday and Thursday in the ski season and in the summer season. There's a great variety of shopping options, including meats, cheeses, clothing, craft stalls, sweets, wine, and local honey. Read about Val Thorens market here.
Since the construction of the new medical centre in place Péclet in summer 2016, the market has moved to Grand Rue, either side of the church. It's a central location, but rather more disrupted by traffic than the old spot.
Val Thorens market is every Tuesday and Thursday, all day. It's busiest in the late afternoon or early evening when everyone's off the slopes and pottering around the resort. The stall holders pack up in the evening, with some staying longer than others.
There's a wide variety of stalls. Some sell clothing, and others craft items. The cheeses and cold meats are popular. A local Belleville Valley apiarist sells delicious honey. He wears a bee costume - a yellow and black top, with bee wings on the back.
