Time Out says

Lausanne's twice-weekly market fills the city centre streets with fresh produce, cakes, cheeses, spices and bric-a-brac.

On Wednesdays and Saturdays Lausanne’s pedestrian streets take on a pleasing bustle with the arrival of the market. Multiple fruit and veg stalls set up shop on Rue de Bourg and the central Place de la Palud, or head up to Place de la Riponne for cheeses, charcuterie, bread and an ever-expanding flea market selling paperbacks, CDs, bric-a-brac and second-hand furniture. For a quick snack, look out for the empanada stall on Rue du Pont, or join the queue at the popular bread and cake stall in Riponne – their coconut macaroons are especially good.
