Fresh Groceries in Nice
Feel like dining in? Not only does Le Trésor de Nice have a fabulous kitchen and an outdoor dining table on the terrace, the nearby cours Saleya supplies the fresh produce, meats and cheeses for nearly any recipe you can dream up -- plus fresh flowers to accent the table.
Outdoor Market Day in Ventimiglia
Or, hop on the train and head over the border into Italy to partake in Outdoor Market Day in Ventimiglia. Held on Fridays in the center of town, along the coast of the Mediterranean, Outdoor Market Day brings together 500+ vendors selling everything from pants to pastries. Keep an eye out for a bargain on Italian leather goods (but you'll have to look closely to avoid being scammed by imitators).
Getting to Ventimiglia from Nice
The train is your best option for getting to Ventimiglia. You'll need sharp elbows to get on trains once it hits 9h at Nice Ville, so arrive at the station early and buy your tickets ahead of time.
IMPORTANT!: When you exit the station in Ventimiglia, walk straight ahead down Via della Stazione. Just before the market, you'll find a bakery on your right that sells the most incredible canoli.
They sell out early, so buy a batch on your way into town.
