Urban expansion of cities, the growth of shopping malls on their outskirts and the upheaval in retailing due to the exponential deployment of new technology and online sales have accentuated the decline of downtown retailing. For local elected officials and public authorities, one of the major challenges of the coming decades will be the commercial revitalization of town and city centers.
Neither a traditional market nor a food court, we strive to offer something new based around food and new urban consumption habits.
By bringing together the best independent artisans from each region under one roof, these meeting places create a new social fabric and revitalize more or less abandoned city centers. These projects generally cover 1,000 to 2,000 m2 venues. Biltoki currently operates 7 covered markets and is developing fifteen projects in France and abroad.
Biltoki is not a developer. We are the sole primary or delegate tenants of the real estate complex comprising the covered market.
On the strength of our expertise, we design the building to optimize the customer experience.
Thanks to a tried and tested method, we recruit traders who will work in the market. We manage and coordinate the covered market with a dedicated team and run the café Biltoki and market kitchen in partnership with a renowned chef.

Jean-Charles Coudret, Poultry Halles de Talence
There's an incredible general dynamic to this place that I love. The people come in and buy my birds, week after week. It is a staple of their week. I know their kids and their friends and their secrets sometimes. Biltoki is a way of life, more than a grocery store.
Antoine Augeard, Charcuterie Halles Bacalan
Les Halles de Bacalan provides consistent sales for my business and builds my reputation in terms of my brand and the food I have to offer. My products are of high quality and they stand out in this particular environment. That's why I was chosen as a vendor here. I have the opportunity to both own a booth and provide services and catering on-site. It's really gratifying to me that I'm a player in this type of retailing.
Maxime Péan, Fishmonger Halles 5 Cantons - Anglet
There is a certain synergy between all of us in the market. Our customers immediately feel at home here. Working alongside enthusiastic and passionate artisans not only keeps me at the top of my game but is a real advantage for us all.
Amaia Uribarri, Truffle artisan Halles 5 Cantons - Anglet
The old traditional concept combined with Biltoki's modernized market concept revamps the image of what a European market should be. Customers are given a rich experience both in terms of tastings on-site and in food education.
Jean-Pierre Lacaze, Baker Halles 5 Cantons - Anglet
I opened my second location at Halles de Talence and my business soared! I did well at my first location by myself, but it was the exposure at this second market that increased my revenue tremendously!
