Visit to the Local Markets in the Cote d'Azur
South of France, France
There is nothing like the sights and smells of a local market to give you a true sense of the gastronomic delights of the region. The local French Provençal markets of Vence, St Paul du Vence and the Cote d'Azur provide the ideal opportunity.
St Paul du Vence has a lovely Provençal market every Wednesday morning in the Place du jeu Boules in the heart of the town. Artisans and farmers from the surrounding area, join the hustle and bustle and its a fantastic place to spend the morning, either shopping for treasures or just people watching. For a combination of local produce and tourist souvenirs, head to the larger town of Vence, where on a Tuesday and Friday, there is a general food and clothing market selling a number of local specialities, such as olives, tapenade, regional cheeses and cured meats. Located in the Cité Historique, its a busy, lively market and a great place to take a morning wander.
