Lausanne City Centre Market

This twice-weekly market fills Lausanne's pedestrianised streets with fruit and vegetable stalls along Rue de Bourg and Place de la Palud, and cheese and charcuterie in Place de la Riponne. There's also a flea market on the fringes, for unusual antiques and vintage threads.
