For those like me that love food markets and finding the cultural essence of the places, this is a perfect place to be. Opens everyday except Sunday or Monday (I'm not quite sure) and has the most beautiful produces you can imagine. Olives, fruit, vegetables, mushrooms of all type, dried tomato and pepper and other specialties make it a colorful... More

We stumbled across the marché around lunch time. A bustling little market just a few steps behind the Promenade des Anglais. You will find not only flowers but also souvenirs like soap, olive oil, cheese, artisan handicrafts and many restaurants and bistros. Always be on the look out for the spots the locals choose for their lunch. They normally know... More

This street market is a great place to visit. The flowers, food, typical merchandise from the region. You hardly will be disappointed!

This market is in a great location close to the beach - as well as flowers there are local crafts and foodstuffs on offer. The sun is right on it during the day for a glass of wine at one of the several cafes watching the crowds. Fab. NB There is a spotlessly clean loo there too, for 50cents.

We had a tip of a local that the flower market was a lovely place to visit in the mornings, so we got up and walked along the seafront at 9am until we reached it. We found it purely by chance - we looked through an archway and saw a man peddling his wares so thought we pop through and... More

Although it's called a flower market, they sell so much more. As the other reviewers have mentioned, there's food, gifts, art and crafts on offer. It's best to come in the mornings as some of the vendors leave around midday, and it'd be a shame to miss out on them. We bought some original paintings at an incredible price, and... More

Stimulate your senses with the vibrant colors, aromatic smells and busy sounds of the market. You can buy fresh and dried flowers, food, clothes, soap, tourist crap, herbs, spices, art and more. We even found candied flower petals. Best to arrive earlier rather than later as some vendors leave earlier than others.

Well worth spending some time here, sniffing and tasting from all the streetvendors offering everything from fresh seafood to dried fruits an perfumed soaps. Its a relatively small and cramped area, but enjoyable

The Nice market, known as the flower market, is much more than flowers. There are clothes, beauty item, canned fish and seafood, art and many places for food. Come early and stay for lunch. Many choices. Best would be fresh sea food. Oysters, clams, mouseles and lobsters. Chilled is best. Many places close early afternoon.

Beautiful authentic market with hand crafted soaps, local sun dried tomatoes, cheeses, artisanal meats ...and tons and tons of beautiful flowers! Have a pain au chocolat and meander through the aisles, perfect morning.
