The marchés in France are generally open air markets, a place to shop for your fresh groceries. We prefer to buy meat, fish and produce there rather than in the supermarkets. The marchés are fabulous, free entertainment, good for shopping and for people watching. Sit in one of the cafés next to a market and while away the morning. The Provence and The Côte d'azur has probably the best markets in France.
Most open air markets are farmers markets, a retail market where you can buy vegetables, fruits, cheeses, meat and poultry, sausages, spices, candied fruits, nougat and flowers. The larger Marché Provençal offers all of the farmers markets' products plus clothing, shoes, linens, pottery and many other useful and not so useful Provence knickknacks.
