The open air market in Provence-Alpes-Cote-D'Azur in the south of France is a fine example of a local french market. Produce, cheese, meat and wares in a lively setting, you could spend all day watching people soaking up the culture.

Nice market on the main street (closed for the traffic) of Arles. I've been their on a Saturday morning and it was full of local products (vegetables, cheese etc) but also other staff (clothes etc).

We love open air markets and this one was very colorful and exhibited the fine foods of the area. It also had other interesting stalls to brows through. It is well worth the visit!
