The flower market is an institution in Nice. It’s been here since the late 19th century and sells flowers as well as fresh fruit, vegetables, cured meats and other delicious local things to eat. It’s a great place to go shopping during your stay but you can also find some lovely lavender products and divine homemade olive oils to take home.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 8am to 1pm. Closed Mondays (for the antique market).
If you’re looking to take home some French perfume, head to the Rose de France. It has many of the biggest names in perfume but at reduced prices.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 7pm.
If you’re looking to leave Nice with lots of great fabric, either as presents (tablecloths, etc.) or to sew something, this is the place to go. It has all the Provençal fabrics. Check out Facebook for up-to-date details.
