The Cote d’Azur is a world apart when no huge gulf separates weekdays from weekends, unlike other parts of France where flea markets always take place on weekends ( Saturday & Sunday), but in this part of France you can find a flea market to visit almost everyday of the week.

The flea markets of the cote d’Azur include more the decorative rather than the rustic. Most of the wares are very often very good quality and in pristine condition. Even though the markets are quite eclectic in the things they sell are not always intrinsic to this region, a lot of items come from different parts of France.

A few interesting items that I liked , yellow and green glazed dishes and pots from Vallauris, a town near Antibes where Spent some time ( a few years, doing ceramics in the late 1940’s) and also the decorative faience ware from Moustiers-Ste-Marie, in the mountains northwest of Grasse.
