    Flower Market: A Riot of Color

    The Flower Markets

    Tempting bundles of beautifully displayed flowers greeted us outside shops along the Coeurs Saleya--such vivid colors! We passed by on our way to the Promenade, stopping often to sniff in appreciation at all the delightful scents around us.

    It seemed that each small town or city we visited in France contained a flower shop or stand somewhere in its midst. I've always identified the area of Provence with sunflowers, magnificent in their height with giant yellow blossoms.

    But upon searching for other flowers growing in France, I discovered these familiar names: Lavendula-a type of French lavender, Clematis, roses, oleander, wisteria, viburnum, artemisia, japonica just to name a few. Lavender, for example, grows throughout France and is used in oils and sachets for its deliciously aromatic scent!

    Flower market

    In the Vieux Nice along the Cours Saleya is the Beautiful Market. It is in the open streets, some coverage but mainly open!

    What to buy: There are many different stands with things ranging from flowers, to vegetables and fruits, spices and small crafts.. even live chickens!! Honest!!

    What to pay: Prices vary even among the venders at the market so take the time to explore!

    i'm not for sale

    EVERY MONDAY the flower market takes center stage at Cours Saleya situated in Old Town Nice. If you love flowers and color, your nose, eyes and soul will get sensory overloaded here. in a good way!

    What to buy: duh. flowers!

    What to pay: kinda expensive for flowers due to its touristic location i guess. tho definitely worth a visit.
