One of the best markets along the Cote d'Azur, the Marche Provencal offers everything from seasonal vegetables to French cheeses to fresh meats, as well as Provencal-style cuisine and local olives, herbs and oils. Many visitors stopped here to gather ingredients for a picnic, and suggested you do the same. The bustling market is located at Cours Masséna. 

Visitors highly recommend checking it out, calling it quaint, with wonderful foods to try. Many say it's better to visit early in the day (before 10 a.m.) to take advantage of the best produce. In addition, from September to mid-June on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, artists exhibit their work in the shade of the market hall starting at 3 p.m. From mid-June to the end of September, they sell their wares Tuesday through Sunday only.

The market is open daily from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. The only exceptions is that is it closed on Mondays from September through May.
