A tour of St. Tropez market

A tour of St. Tropez market

After a long absence a warm hello to all my faithful readers and a very belated Happy New Year. The reason for this recently empty space is that as soon as we arrived in Grimaud just after Christmas my husband and I both went down with the dreaded coughing cold. I had it particularly badly and seemed to cough day and night for about two weeks. Luckily they have excellent pharmacies in France and I was able to buy some soothing cough medicine. I am now nearly fully recovered and am building up my strength with walks on the beach and in the vineyards. I did manage to go with friends for a tour of St. Tropez market last Tuesday. Below are some photos of stalls that caught my attention.

Sweaters in St. Tropez market

Some cosy sweaters in vibrant colours. We have needed sweaters recently as the mistral has been blowing on several occasions.

Cashmere ponchos in a variety of colours.

Beige cardigan and trousers

I saw quite a few chic french women wearing neutral colours often with the addition of a brightly coloured scarf.

Turquoise maxi dress

This was one of my favourite stalls. Brightly coloured maxi dresses in a variety of prints and colours. Quite a few of the styles below are reduced in the sale.

Hats in St. Tropez market

This hat stall is always one of my favourites. I have acquired a collection over the years. I am wearing my pink one in the balloon photo.

Beige jacket and trousers

Neutral colours again. I think that this padded jacket would be extremely useful at this time of year.

    Hello Josephine and a belated Happy New Year to you! I just love those sweaters, especially the blues and greens. My partner and I have recently booked a holiday to Nice as he loves the South of France and we thought it would be a good base for exploring the area. I can’t wait to revisit Menton and maybe even take the train into Italy this time. We’re not going until June, but already I am thinking about what clothes to wear! The market in St Tropez looks amazing! I love your style and the colours you choose. Kind regards, Gill

      Hello Gill
      I am sure you will have a great time. It is many years since I have been to Menton. We are normally in France April/May so I will do a post on what to wear at that time of year.

    Glad to read that you’re feeling better! After a three year absence from France, due to Covid, I will be returning there in March. Hoping to make a stop at the St. Tropez market. It’s open only on Tuedays and Saturdays. Is this correct?

      Hello Sandra
      Yes, St.Tropez market is on Tuesdays and Saturdays. It is best to get there early if you are going at Easter or during the Summer as it gets very crowded and the lanes in between the stalls are narrow.

    Josephine, I am so happy to hear you and your husband are better now. That is one awful cough… Thank you for your lovely, colourful and interesting blog.

    I did wonder why we hadn’t heard from you for such a long time. So sorry to hear you’ve been poorly but glad you’re now better. Wonderful that St Tropez market is your first post of 2023. I’ve only been once and just love it. You can’t do too many about it.
    Wishing you a happy and joyful new year.

    I am a new follower and I am enjoying your post from France. We were there last year in December and about froze to death but it was worth it. It is so gorgeous during the holidays! We are headed to Italy in March. We go over there 4 or 5 times a year as we are working on a renovating an Italian palazzo in Casoli, Italy. Looking forward to reading more of your blog. Stop by mine when you get a chance.
