In a word: no, it's not worth it. Unless you want to leave Cassis at 6am, that is. In summer, Uzes market is only magic between 7:30 and 9am. After that, it's...a bit of a pain. You can't park. You can't move for punters. You can't find anywhere to eat afterwards. It's basically all over by 1:30pm. OK, it has a great selection of ceramics, textiles and homewares. Not to mention fresh fish, local cheese...and olives to die for. Plus the guys up on the boulevard selling CDs...leather goods...hand-made soap...and herbs. And lots of tourist kitsch, of course. As authentic market experiences go, Aix-en-Provence is probably just as good. Better save Uzes for another time - preferably not in high season - when you're staying a lot closer. Maybe in winter... when they're dealing raw truffles in one corner of the Place aux Herbes.
as someone has said, Uzes market is very crowded in summer, and parking is difficult.
An alternative is Sommieres market, also Saturday. The market takes over the town with bric a bric near the arenes and general market through the streets. The centre is the original market square dating from 11thC. There are restaurants under the medieval arches.
Easiest parking is to the west of the River Vidourle.
