The Provencal Market is quite an impressive lot: food, flower, antiques, flea, books, material and clothing. Different markets take place at different plazas everyday around the centre town. Last Sunday when all stores and shopping were closed, we stumbled upon the Old and Secondhand Books Market. I later found out this occurs only once a month on the first Sunday at Place de l’hôtel de ville. Unfortunately my French is nowhere near good, so buying French books is not an option. However, I still enjoyed admiring the books.
Another market took place at Cours Mirabeau. I’m not sure what this market was supposed to be because no market on Sundays on the main strip is supposed to exist. It did last Sunday but not Bastille Sunday, which I had expected because of the holiday.
A plethora of stalls lined the strip from one end to another. We perused the strip and saw it was mostly clothing, soaps, housewares and jewelry. My suspicion is that this was the Material and Clothing Item Market, but I’m not 100% sure since it’s supposed to occur on Thursdays and not Sundays at Cours Mirabeau. Whatever it was, we enjoyed the gander.
