Provencal Market of Antibes
Some pictures to discover a nice indoor market in the center of the old town of Antibes. Around fifty fruit and vegetable traders, fishmongers, butchers, oil and spice dealers ... offer their products all year long.
A market, a few steps from the Picasso museum, the town hall and the ramparts
The covered market is located on the Cours Masséna named after the Marshal of Empire, not to be confused with the Place Masséna in Nice, near the Cours Saleya and market. The market welcomes you from Tuesday to Sunday, from 6am to 1pm except in June, July and August where it is active every day of the week from 6am to 1:45 pm.
Many cafes and restaurants border the place, especially under small arches on the "interior" side of the market. The atmosphere is friendly and authentic. People do their shopping or come just for a coffee with friends.
The products are quality and many local producers market their goods directly. Some stalls claim organic products labeled AB (bio). The atmosphere is very friendly and the high attendance requires to take time to go around the place. Take the time to look at the prices displayed. Indeed, the tourist attendance makes flying some products tariffs!
In summer, the place is home to the craft market in the afternoon, from 15h, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from September to mid-June. And from mid-June to the end of September, every day except Monday.
We advise you to visit the Picasso Museum a few meters away, but also to go for a stroll in the streets with the charm so typical and the welcome freshness during the crushing days of heat in summer. A short walk on the ramparts of the city will offer you an unparalleled view of the port Vauban, said port of billionaires in the foreground, the square fort a little further, but also and especially on the nearby Alps. Which literally dive into the Mediterranean Sea to beautifully give the name of Alpes-Maritimes to the locality.
