It was a pleasant surprise to see the Friday market alive and full of new products though I had doubted its future already before the pandemic. Stock in Italian means left over pieces from past...

From the outside, the Market Building is an ugly concrete structure that doens't fit in the environment at all. But from the inside, it's huge and accommodates many vendors. If you are around, just...

Very crowded and very large. Too many illegal African sellers of watches, hats, bags. All blocking up the walkways. A good range of products and it is certainly an experience. Have been 3 times in 3 years whilst we were in France. That's enough, probably won't go there again. Warning, car parking is almost impossible!! Took us almost an hour to find a place, and that was 15minutes walk from the market. Suggest bus or train, leave car at home.
Definitely not worth a trip from Menton over to Italy. Every stall in the market is identical to the next. There are a few cheese and meat stalls that are grand if that’s what you’re after. Otherwise it’s all cheap clothes. Not the experience we were expecting. *if travelling from Menton make sure to bring photo ID for border police on your trip back.
I love ventimiglia and I love the market. A genuine working town with the beach and the old town and good shopping if you want too. The market is a good mix of value and expensive but mostly good quality. Plenty of french people popping over the border to bag a bargain. Plus the great weather. What's not to like.
I don’t get the hype of this market, we drove all the way from Nice and sat in traffic, then circled for about 2.5 hours to find a parking spot. Upon arrival, I already knew this market was not special. It’s the same stands I’ve seen everywhere else, just loads and loads of them. Everything repeats itself within a street or two, you’re bound to see the same items every corner you look. Didn’t need to make a special trip for this market, wasted half a day.
Typical italian market, good vegetable and fruits, lovely flowers, good prices and lively atmosphere. There is also a very good fish shop. Saturdays and Sundays the market it's open up to 5 pm.
