Occupying the quaint square Places Des Lices, the eponymous market combines traditional French culture with chic vintage fashion and Provencal cuisine.
One of the few places both tourists and locals come together, the market is a must-do attraction for those on a private yacht charter in St Tropez. Hosted a stone's throw away from the designer streets, Place Des Lices offers a refreshing shopping experience.
While St Tropez boasts a host of well-known designer shops, its market treats are for those seeking to explore the local way of life. Twice a week, the market is bundled full of the town's finest artifacts. As you approach from the harbor, the food extravaganza is held to the right and the clothes and antique emporium transforms to the left.
Hidden amongst the trees are chic treasures. Ranging from vintage designer handbags from the likes of Louis Vuitton and Chanel to handmade arts and crafts to take home to loved ones, Place Des Lices has it all.
Opposite the vintage designer and antique market, the enormous food area takes guests on a culinary adventure. From French wines and delectable cheeses to fresh divine produce, the stalls in Place Des Lices can provide for any palate.
While it encompasses a variety of cuisines and shopping experiences, the market itself is small, allowing it to be conquered in just over an hour. Once the market finishes at 1 pm, be sure to refresh at a nearby coffee shop.
As a result of the market's popularity, a coffee overlooking the square is an ideal place to people-watch. Café des Arts is a popular retreat for locals and VIP clientele. The likes of the late Karl Lagerfield and Mick Jagger are known to frequent the market, so you never know who may walk by!
