When on vacation in Nice I was doing all my fruit and veg shopping at the market - you cannot compare the produce to that from the supermarkets.
the market is really large and spills out from the square to the nearby streets, have a good walk around before committing to purchase - you can find better deals or nicer produce.
Almost everything is locally grown, fresh, seasonal and smells are amazing!
Prices are great - e.g. a large bunch of lettuce was 80 cents, made 3 salads with it!
Amazing apricots at 2-3 Euro per kilo...
There are several fish stalls freshly caught seafood, you'll spot them underneath the red canopy.
Note it is closed on Mondays, other days it's open from early morning (6-7am) to 1pm.

This is not the Cours Selaya, it is a real market with magnificent variety of fresh fish stalls. The Smoked Haddock at E32 per kilo is as good as you will get in France.

The quality and range of vegetables is staggering. And all fresh farm picked.

Don't forget to visit the inside venue at the most northerly part just off the tram line to the right. They have butcher shops and ready made food, all fresh made.

If you have ever seen Arthur Avenue in the Bronx this is very similar to the inside stalls there. But again, the variety is amazing.

Take your shopping bags, catch the tram, get off three stops from Massena and fill them up. You will be happy. Before you come back, stop at one of the many little cafes at the top end of the market, relax and admire how well the French do this kind of thing.

There is nothing wrong with Cours Saleya, but if you found it too touristic, so Marché de la Libération is right address for you. Fresh vegetables and fruits not to forget fish and other sea life. Good place to some shopping or just sit in a cafe in enjoy the view.

Open six days a week, 6am till about 1pm this food market is the best around. Cheaper than the small daily touristy market in Cours Saleya, this is where to come for serious food shopping. As well as a half dozen or so fish counters that stock every variety of fish imaginable, there are countless fruit and vegetable stalls, several cheese and local produce tables (olives, eggs, flowers, nuts and so on) as well as a covered area up at the far end of the market. It is found a few minutes walk north of the main station and the tram stops right in the middle of it. I go a few times a week for most of my fish and vegetables.

We truly loved the outdoor market for its great selection of fresh vegetables. The butcher and bakery inside the indoor market were also great. Unfortunately the seafood was a nightmare to say the least! We bought a big crab at the last stall on the seafood row where the owner said it was fresh. After we got back to our rented apartment and got it cooked, it turned out to be very bad. The crab must have been dead for quite some time, the inside is black and the smell is strong as if they used some sort of chemical to keep it look fresh. We ended up throwing the whole thing away and promised ourselves not to buy any seafood there anymore. What a shame for such a great market that would have got a 5 stars rating!

Every day except Mondays this market is the best one in Nice for fruit & vegetables, ecological fruit & vegetables and for fish & seafood. You call also find meat and cheese (especially inside the old market building at the main square) It's cheaper than the one in the old Nice (Cours Saleya), more for the local Niçois than the tourists. It has become more and more popular the last few years, with the development of the neighbourhood of "La Liberation"'. On Sundays it gets really crowded. Definitely not to miss as a tourist. A little "off the beaten track" but all you need to do is walk up the main shopping street Jean Medecin north for 10 minutes (or take the tram a few stations). Open only in the mornings (until 12h-13h).

Someone recommended I try this area for shopping. I have to say it was AMAZING.....it went on forever -- there were outside stalls and indoor shops. fresh pasta, fish markets galore and of course all the vegetables and fruits you could possible want. Since I was staying in an apartment and there was a kitchen I could cook in I had a ball!!

This fresh food market is opposite the Liberation tram stop, so very easy to get to from an access point of view.

There is a wide selection of different fruits, vegetables and other fresh food.

All very reasonably priced and you pay based on the weight.

Even just walking around the market is refreshing.

For cooks, yes, for tourists not so much. Lots of fresh produce, fresh fish, but not the diversity of offerings at the marché des fleurs in old town. Still we enjoyed poking around. Great if you have a kitchen *and* want to cook.

We walked the market and picked out a great lunch. Bagel, have, tomatoes, olives and cheese. The quality was superior and the food fresh. For less then 15 Euro we enjoyed a great lunch.
