Home of the legendary flower market, which is somewhere you have to go round. Incredible!
More than a must-visit
Always full of people, the popularity of this place lies in the huge variety of fresh products. From very early each morning, several stalls show the best pickings, tempting your eyes and nose with fruit, vegetables and the best quality homemade foods, making up a variety of items that are difficult to find anywhere else. The market stalls selling spices are very appealing, and you're bound to love these! Besides this, and as a personal recommendation, let yourself get carried away by the unmistakable scent of the soaps of Marseille: there are so many kinds and colours that you'll find it difficult to decide which ones you want to buy. This market is also home to the famous Marché aux Fleurs which is one of the symbols in the city. Cours Saleya Market is finished off with other stalls offering costume jewellery and arts and crafts. In the evening, the market becomes one of the best spots in the city, turning into a busy area of bars and restaurants.
