Located in the heart of the Old Town, in Cours Masséna, lies the lively market of Antibes, with about thirty vendors with local products. Stroll around this covered market and let its Provençal soul carry you away.
The name Cours Masséna comes from the Marshal of France, Duke of Rivoli and Prince of Essling. It was previously called ‘Place Vieille’ but it was then renamed Cours Masséna after Nice was annexed to France in 1860.
You will find an inspiring mix of fresh fruit and vegetables, local cheese, olives, spices and of course a wide selection of colourful flowers. It is the perfect place to buy some local products and prepare for a picnic during your lunch break. You can also try the traditional niçoise Socca which is made of chickpea flour and olive oil and it is cooked over a wood fire.
The market is open daily except Mondays. However, in the afternoon the market changes to a crafts market. You will find exceptional work of local painters, ceramicists, sculptures and woodworkers.
There are also many restaurants and cafes surrounding the market so if you want to take a sit and enjoy the old city of Antibes you will find a good selection of cafés to sit and relax.
