Colored Markets

In addition to its little dishes based on olive oil, garlic, and vegetables of the sun, Nice is famed as the home ofsocca, a small pancake made with chick pea flour, this forming an integral part of the city’s identity — not forgetting the famous ratatouille, the little Farci Niçois or stuffed vegetables, pissaladière (a savoury tart), tourte de blettes (sweet or savoury pies), courgette flower fritters, and the celebrated «salade niçoise». On the sandwich side of things, the Pan Bagnat is king. As for dessert, apart from ice-cream from Old Nice, there are whole candied fruit, specialities from certain confectioneries, such as Florian and Auer, which can also be found at the Cours Saleya Market.
