Shopping in Marseille is some of the best outside of Paris, with broad and diverse offerings from upscale brands to arts and crafts shops tucked into cobblestone alleyways. You'll find vast indoor shopping malls and outdoor traditional historic markets offering local goods and fresh produce. Popular items to bring home include soap and carved creche figurines known as santons.

    Major shopping neighborhoods are the rue Paradis, the rue Saint Ferréol and rue de Rome. Several famed traditional markets run here, including the daily fish market at the Vieux Port and the lively weekend Les Puces flea market along Madrague Ville.
