We stayed at a lovely B&B, Le Limas, which is run by a woman named Marion Wagner. Our room was large, modern, and airy, and Marion provides you with a simple and delicious breakfast every morning on her roof, which looks out over the town. We highly recommend the B&B to anyone thinking of visiting.
While there is not much to see within Avignon (visiting the town is more about taking in the scenery than about visiting specific sights), we did make the requisite visit to Les Halles, the town's market. The market is indoors and you are welcomed at the entrance by an impressive living wall.
Unlike markets we've visited in other cities, like La Boqueria de Mercat in Barcelona or Union Market in DC (my hometown!), which are built as much for tourists photos as for grocery shopping, Les Halles is truly a local's market. It isn't pretty, and it isn't overflowing with people. Instead, it is full of locals getting their every day groceries. The stalls have incredible breads, cheeses, meats, fruits, etc., but the fare is presented for purchase, not Instagram. We sadly did not have any reason to buy food in Avignon, but we were definitely tempted by the cheese options, and the prices (a circle of goat cheese that will run you $10 at Whole Foods goes for 2 Euro in Avignon).
