St Tropez Market, France
Market days are part of the fabric of life in Provence and the Cote D’Azur. Most villages have a weekly market and St Tropez is undoubtedly one of the largest of the Provencal markets and a firm favourite of ours. For us, a visit to the town is not complete without wandering through the packed Place des Lices, located behind the winding streets at the back of the town.
In the shade of the plane trees, the stall holders jostle for your attention selling a huge and wonderfully colourful selection of local produce – from fruit, vegetables, cheese, bread, olives, sausages and soaps to fabrics, homewares and clothes, the list is incomplete but gives you a taster. It’s hot, busy and fun. The locals come early to get the best produce so join them from 8am when it’s cooler and less frenetic. You are guaranteed to come away with empty pockets but your basket filled with goodies and your head and heart buzzing with the local bonhomerie. Channel your inner Jane Birkin in our Esmeralda Dress and Melissa Flat Sandals.
St Tropez Market, Place des LIces. Every Tuesday and Saturday. 8am – 1pm.
