The Marché aux Fleurs in the cours Saleya in Nice is renowned for its colourful flowers and assorted fruit and fresh vegetables that overflow from the stalls all along the long courtyard. The buildings that surround the ‘cours’ used to be fishermen’s warehouses but have now been converted into seafood restaurants or cafés where you can sit at a terrace and watch the bustle of the market. The market mostly deals with fresh produce such as fish, cheese and vegetables but it also features a number of regional products such as honey, lavender and barrels of olive oil. For those who prefer to get stuck in rather than observe from a terrace, there are nicois specialities to sample as you wander around the many stalls, such as a tarte des blettes, a spinach tart dusted with icing sugar, or the classic ‘salade niçoise’ with anchovies.
