The market in Place des Lices sells a huge range of foods including breads, pastries, cheeses, sausages, flowers, olives, spices, herbs, fruit and vegetables. Locals head to the market early to secure the freshest produce. You can also find fashion items in that typical French Riviera style. In addition, there are stalls selling paintings, arts & crafts, antiques, posters and object d'arts of very good quality. Prices are good here too - a rarity on the Cote d'Azur and certainly in St Tropez.
On Sundays, from 5am to 2pm, the huge Brocante Jas des Roberts is held in between Port Grimaud and Grimaud. This flea market has become a must-see event for the bargain hunters of the Golfe de Saint Tropez.
Port Grimaud itself holds very popular markets on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and is a lovely little water-side town to explore.
Envied by many towns, La Grande Braderie de Saint Tropez is, under any circumstances, an event not to be missed. Over several days in late October, the boutiques of Saint Tropez move lots of their clothes out into the street on racks and tables to sell them off at extremely reduced prices. This is a custom that happens in clothes shops across France, and sends many people all-a-tizzy. In addition to all the great bargains, there is a friendly and festival style atmosphere in the streets of Saint Tropez.
