Rivery is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France.

Geography[edit]

Rivery is situated on the north-eastern outskirts of Amiens, on the other side of the Somme River and on the D1 road. The area is known for its market gardens, or ‘hortillons’, small patches of cultivated land between the drainage channels that prevent the area returning to marsh.
