Directions to Draguignan Market
Draguignan market is set up in the Place du Marche every Wednesday and Saturday and oozes character regardless of the time of year. Stalls are usually trading by 8am or just after and close up between midday and 1pm.
There are wonderful selections of fresh fruit and vegetables, olives, cheeses, charcuterie, rotisserie chickens, olives oils, pates and tapenades. All very well priced and certainly cheaper than any market on the coast without losing any of the quality or charm.
The square itself is delightful, surrounded by lovely shops, including the Halle Marchand, which contains and lovely cheese shop and butchers. In the centre of the square a couple of little bars and restaurants share the space for their tables and chairs so it's a nice place to sit and have your coffee or lunch after you've done your shopping. The staff are incredibly friendly and can't do enough for you.
Just around the corner the market spills out down the hill and you can find bread stalls and more cheeses. There is also the poissonerie where you can get all manner of shellfish and fish, all caught nearby and delivered first thing in the morning.
On the main steet a clothes market sets up on the same day as the food market. It's interesting enough to poke around but some of the fashions will raise a few eyebrows. Still, while reasonable enough the clothing does at least look relatively well made. Aside from the market there are some lovely little boutiques along the main street in varying price ranges.
It may not seem as glamourous as other markets on the Cote d'Azur but Draguignan Market is perfectly respectable and a great little market to while away a couple of hours without being ripped off.
