Windows on Provence
One of the joys of a trip to
My two favourite markets are the ones in Aix and St Rémy. The main market in Aix takes place around the Place des Prêcheurs and Place de Verdun on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Everywhere gets really crowded on market day mornings, but Bellegarde car park, on the northern side of Aix’s equivalent of the north circular is usually a good bet, and it’s only a short walk from there.
Market day is Wednesday in St Rémy, and it’s really worth a visit… The market sprawls through the older part of town, but the main part is just behind the Church in front of the town hall. I can’t help you on the parking front in St Rémy – you’ll just have to take your chances. But it’s certainly worth the effort!
