Market Day is Every Day (almost)
Plan your visit on a Wednesday or Saturday, to enjoy the Marché Provençal with vendors stalls through many streets in the historic centre. It runs from 8:30h – 12:30h.
Sunday mornings there is a Marché Traditionnel at Fréjus-Plage (the beach).
Tuesday and Friday mornings head to Place de la République for the Marché Traditionnel.
During summer months there are also night markets every night at Port-Fréjus and Fréjus-Plage.
