First of all, why Biltoki?
This unusual term means “the place that gathers” in Basque. A strong word with meaning for the four friends behind this project. Through Biltoki, their desire is simple: to offer food shops and bring back to life the halls of yesteryear within cities. Soon enough, several local authorities and partners were won over.
Since 2009, Biltoki has been present in 7 cities and about 15 projects are under development in France and internationally. And today, it is in Rouen that we find this project.
A hybrid concept
Biltoki has created for us Les Halles Agrivin.
Located on the esplanade of the Docks 76 and 5 min from City Center of Rouen, this modernized traditional market is composed of 23 independent food shops. Artisans, producers, caterers, local restaurateurs, all have been selected for their passion, their dynamism, their ethics and their complementarity.
To complete the very friendly atmosphere of this place, a unique event program around food and gastronomy will be drawn each year.
Les Halles Agrivin is therefore not only a market hall, it is a warm and sharing place that lives all day long at the rhythm of its city. You can do your market, drink a coffee, have lunch with your work colleagues, have an aperitif with friends or have dinner with your family… With its shared tables, its terrace and nearly 250 indoor and outdoor seats, it is a new authentic and singular living space that intends to become part of your daily life.

Events throughout the year
Integrated in the cultural and event programming of Rouen, the Biltoki team and the shopkeepers offer many events to give a different experience around gastronomy to the inhabitants of their city.
Tastings, cooking workshops, “Pintxo Gaua” (giant tapas evening), “Guinguette des copains”, night markets, braziers and barbecues, Sunday brunch, festive bingos, concerts, conferences on the challenges of tomorrow’s food… every year the agenda will be rich!”
Did you know? The privatization of Les Halles, it’s possible!
“A la carte”, the Biltoki team will customize each request to create private events high in flavor! All options will be possible: inside the market, on the terrace, during opening hours or after closing time for total privatization of the place. Customized services will be offered for companies: integration of products from the merchants, festive moments in the heart of the halls or in private meeting rooms.
