A market in Provence will propel you into a holiday mood in a hurry, and Aix is no exception. On market days, vendors take over most of the parking spots, and set up stalls in several squares around town. The main markets are held at the Place des Precheurs and the Place de la Madeleine. Wandering from one market to another, visitors can walk along quiet, cobblestoned streets, pass a church, a fountain, an elegant mansion, then turn a corner and find themselves in a charming square noisy the chatter of vendors and residents, contemplating what to have for dinner. It’s a relaxing contrast from supermarket culture.
The sheer pleasure of wandering the stalls, choosing perfectly ripened melons, or small, vibrantly red strawberries, juicy peaches and more is a treat in itself. Even without a kitchen, this is great picnic fare when combined with fresh bread, cheeses, olives and the famous Aix confection, the calisson (almond treat), to finish the feast. On certain days, flower markets enliven the city with a wonderful display of color.
