Cours Julien Market

Cours Julien is located near the busy street of Cours Lieutaud. This little alley hosts various markets, one of the most popular ones being the local farmer’s market on Wednesdays. Come for fresh, organic local produce and portable edibles to bring home.


Marseille’s main shopping areas are in the central and southern parts of town and cater to all tastes, from Côte d’Azur luxury and large department stores to quirky little boutiques and stores. If you want smaller shops then head to the Cours Julien area, which has built up a reputation as an alternative, bohemian quarter. The area is also great for food and antique markets at weekends. Le Panier, Marseille’s oldest neighbourhood, is the best place for local products. Rue des Petits Puits and places des Pistoles are good streets for Provençal pottery and shops selling lavender soap and olive-based goodies.
