The Liberation Market
13 October 2018
The Market Liberation exists in Nice since the end of the 19th century. Its creation is linked to the construction in 1892 of the south train station which allowed the farmers of the Plaine du Var to come by train in Nice to sell their productions. In 2008, the market was modernized with the arrival of the first tramway line.
The market is held in the district of the same name, Liberation : General de Gaulle Square (ex Liberation place), Malaussena Avenue, « Gare du Sud » place, Joseph Garnier Boulevard, Veillon and Clement Roassal streets ...
Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 06:00 to 12:30, and closed on Mondays, it is an open air market on which local producers offer fruits and vegetables, flowers ... There are also fishmongers and local shops (caterer, butcher, cheese maker). A total of about 120 exhibitors, some of whom present for several generations. Added to the open market, you can find a nearly century-old merchant city, the "Docks de la Riviera" in the Raiberti street.
At the Libé market, a local population and tourists mix in a real market atmosphere. Nearby, cafes and bars, neighborhood pubs and small restaurants offer food specialties of Nice and Mediterrean cuisine.
