Les Halles - Paris - Market Traders

Les Halles - Paris - Market Traders outside the market. Les Halles was the traditional central market of Paris. In 1183, King Philippe II Auguste enlarged the marketplace in Paris and built a shelter for the merchants, who came from all over to sell their wares. In the 1850s, the massive glass and iron buildings Les Halles became known for (designed by Architect Victor Baltard), were constructed. Les Halles was known as the "stomach of Paris". Unable to compete in the new market economy and in need of massive repairs, the colourful ambience once associated with the bustling area of merchant stalls disappeared in 1971, when Les Halles was dismantled; the wholesale market was relocated to the suburb of Rungis
