A nice slice of local life in Cassis. A visit to the local market is a exposure to the French culture.

Our cruise docked at La Seyne Sur Mer. We opted to go to Cassis, a small fishing village by ourselves instead of joining the cruise shore excursions. Taking a ferry to Toulon, we boarded a bus across the road from escape Marine to Gare Sncf Toulon, the railway station. We booked the tickets to Cassis and boarded the train. 30 minutes later, we were at Cassis station. Just outside the station is a bus stand to take you to town. If you should feel up to it, walk to town. You will walk pass numerous vineyards on your way in but the walk, while enjoyable, is about 30 minutes. Once in town, the market square is a must place to visit. Locals ply their trades and you will enjoy browsing and buying some local stuff. The harbour is a short walk from here and you can go on a boat to see the fascinating Calanques, which are steep facing cliffs unique to this area. Once done, you may also like to eat at a local restaurant and watch the crowd go by. Alternatively, if you have prepared yourself, go for a swim at the beach. Cassis is lovely and worth the journey.

The Wednesday and Friday morning markets are a good source of local produce. The food is fresh and a little below store prices. The rotisserie chicken is delicious and a great idea if you're staying at a guest house or bnb and want to eat in. The stalls of clothes are similar with much Italian linen, way below US prices. Shop around, though b/c prices differ in the off-aisles. The market is crowded during high season, but since it's staged in the park and square you can sit and rest. Also refreshments are very close by as you are near the harbor. Take a good carrying tote, go early, because they close up around 1:00

There’s nothing like a French market to assail the senses! And this one didn’t disappoint! It’s full of colour, smells and wonderful sights. Whether you’re browsing, buying or just looking, don’t go to Cassis, and miss it! Great fun, and very photogenic.

See photo below. This guys charged us "20€ only!" For 9 small stuffed peppers and 200 grams of artichoke dip (which I think was marked 4.50€/100 grams, the peppers were marked 3.90€/100 grams and weighed about 150 grams when I got home). Avoid him.

At the same time, I got some nice peaches and bread at normal prices from nice people. But a thieving vendor ruins the whole experience.

This delightful market has very high-quality products, especially the food! A wide variety of cheeses, olives, breads, and other local products. The clothes and leather and olive-wood items are also high quality for a market. The sales people are friendly and engaging, even if you speak (especially if you speak?) limited French. Eager to sell, of course, but not pushy. I only wish I could have bought more! I happened to be there on May 8, which commemorates the end of WW II, and there was a little ceremony to honor the war dead at one side of the market. Very moving. The market site is really beautiful (which, of course, is true of everywhere in Cassis).

This market was full of wonderful French specialties such as breads, cheese and meats. There were some special crafts, such as olive wood cutting boards and knives and local area salts & herbs. This is not a typical market where there are a lot of clothing or jewelry vendors, no leather goods and very little art.

Parking has greatly improved with the construction of a multi-storey (underground) parking garage. The visit to Cassis is much more enjoyable. A trip to see the Calanques is definitely worth the cost. A delightful little, less overwhelming version of St Tropez, etc.

Visited the market on a Wednesday morning but it is also heldon a Friday. Lots of clothing stalls and still setting up at around 8am so nice and quiet and you didn’t have to fight your way through people to see the goods for sale. A number of food stalls with the vendors eager to hand out delicious samples for you to try. Some were a little pushy but most were lovely and happy to stand back and let you look. I would advise not buying from the first stall where you see something as you may find the exact thing two stalls further away for half the price!

We were on a day-trip out of Toulon during a cruise stop, and this was something that our driver thought we should see. The Cassis’ market occurs every Wednesday and Friday morning from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. The market bustles with offerings of food, including olives, cheese, sausage, pastries, fresh produce, spices, and loaves of bread. You can also purchase soaps and fragrances, clothing, shoes, jewelry, handmade items, and much more. There is something for everyone. I don’t think many vendors spoke English, but that didn’t seem to be a problem. We enjoyed our short visit to the market, and I would recommend this quaint experience if you are going to be in Cassis on a Wednesday or Friday. Any trip to a French village or small town should probably include a visit to their local market. The town of Cassis is a beautiful little Mediterranean port village with a small beach. The area offers a lot of touristic things to see and do. I would love to return someday for an extended stay.
