We visited the Cours Saleya flower market on a chilly, rainy Tuesday morning. The flowers were gorgeous, lending cheer to the occasion. It was a lot of fun to check out the vegetables and fruits, many of which you wouldn’t see in the fresh markets back home. There were some flea market stalls, so we browsed those and bought some...

Yes it's a flower market, but also produce, souvenirs (soap, sachets, paintings, etc) and some prepared foods. Also lots of cafés and bistros along the sides but we opted to walk a bit more before eating. This marché is absolutely worth a look. Oh the olives, oh the spices... Mmm!

Every time I go to Nice I decide to spend some time in the flower market: colours arte inspiring, perfume and smells are unique and there is a sort of very french touch in the way products are displayed. It is nice to walk in the market and then stop in a cafè for a coffee or a tea with... More

In July and August, Nice almost sinks into the sea under the weight of tourists. The small old town is comically full of people, and as the evening comes, everybody shall eat. Until noon, you can actually buy flowers on Marche aux fleurs, but then the restaurants take over. Many of them are probably amateur, part time operations. The city... More

It's a place worth going to. There are stalls selling flowers, lavender products, fresh fruits, vegetables, bakery. There are also artists selling drawings of Nice, Menton, Eze Village etc. Socca, a famous local snack, can be found here as well.

We visited Nice on a Saturday morning as part of a guided tour which took us from our cruise ship berthed at the passenger terminal in Monte-Carlo Harbour, to village of Eze and then on to Nice. Whilst in Nice, our tour guide gave the tour group members some free time to visit places of their choice. One of the... More

Cours Saleya is the Nice flower market and a typical food market most days of the week. Mondays, the place is a busy flee market. It is surrounded by a numerous touristic restaurants, but of a generally high quality and at quite high prices.

A wonderful array of stalls with flowers, vegetables and fruit, soaps, artwork and many other items. Well displayed and at very good prices. I do not understand the issue mentioned by other reviewers about pickpockets. There is always this danger in any city in the world, particularly around crowded markets. There is a need for common sense and precautions and... More

Went to nice for a day and spent a short while at this market. Very touristy attraction especially later in the day. Made the smart decision of going early so there weren't so many people but I recommend not going later in the day during the summer it will be very crowded. Very long market with a lot more things...
