What can you find at the booksellers' market?

If you're interested in finding rare books, there's a place on the Quais de Saône which may interest you. Many visitors and bargain hunters come here to find that rare gem. This market has been going for 20 years now on the Quais de Saône . This is a high quality market and there are prices to suit all pocketbooks.
You can find a book priced for just one Euro or something much more expensive and obviously much rarer.

What sort of customers visit the booksellers' market?

As the city of Lyon is registered on UNESCO's heritage list, the customer base tends to be very diverse. The  booksellers' market is listed in the “Guide du Routard”. This is what attracts tourists here as they have read that it's something they should definitely not miss. The locals come here because it's part of the local scenery of things to do.

Why were the Quais de Saône chosen for this market?

This spot was chosen at the very outset when the market was created, certainly for the sheer charm of the quays. You have to bear in mind that several other markets are also located on the quays. You'll find the open-air market, the art market and the artisan & crafts market , together, this creates something of an alliance of various markets. Most importantly, of course, the river banks are naturally charming places to be.
