Marché Aux Fleurs (flowers, food and antiques)
There has been a flower market on the Cours Saleya since 1897, when farmers would arrive with their flowers, which would then be sent by train to various parts of Europe. When the wholesalers had left, individuals would be allowed in to buy the remaining stock. Wholesalers now use a different market and food and drink has been added. It’s a great place to eat lunch under one of the striped awnings and watch the world go by. On Mondays, the flowers and food are replaced with antiques.
Opening hours: Food market Tuesday to Saturday, 6am-5.30pm. Sunday, 6am-1.30pm. Antiques market Monday, 7.30am to late afternoon.
