Some says it’s always sunny in Nice and they are right. So don’t ask us why we choose to visit the cours Saleya famous market on a stormy day!

p1040324Anyway, the place is charming and beautiful with all its “institutions” cafés branchés. It’s truly the heart of the area of “le Vieux Nice”, and really the place to see and to be seen in Nice. You can buy fruits and vegetables from local little producers every day, but also take a coffee, campari, or anisette, watching all the trendy people Of the groovy Nice passing by.p1040274

Plus of course, you can have the traditional socca and petits farcis, and a nice lunch at “Le Safari”, “Les Ponchettes” or “La civette du cours”.p1040290

Just near by you can find the very rococo Opera de Nice, and the best fruits confits ever at Auer  confiserie, or the delicious Alziari olive oil in its blue metal bottle.

Almost everyday at the same place, you have the flower market; on mondays, that’s “la brocante/ secondhand trade”, but be careful, it’s not cheap at all cause the best antique dealers are there, so it’s more about nice precious stuff.

On the streets around you can also find a lot of nice places for shopping, like Agnes B rue des ponchettes,  Antik Boutik rue de la Préfecture for clothing, and la Cabane for decoration. We will give you all the good addresses around sometimes soon. Meanwhile, if you go to NIce GO TO cours Saleya, we swear it’s not overrated!!!

For all the days and hours for the fruits and vegetables, flowers, books, antiques, fish (not far from there on Place Saint François) or books markets (Place du palais de Justice), check here for the “Ville de Nice” website.p1040302  p1040294  p1040273  p1040291  p1040288
