Supermarkets: for those renting a villa or apartment in the Saint Tropez area, such individuals may consider visiting local supermarkets, which would include Monoprix (9 av. Général Leclerc), Petit Casino (rue Général Allard), and SPAR (Place des Lices).
Place des Lices – this market (open every Tuesday & Saturday) is a jam-packed kaleidoscope of everything from fruits & vegetables to antique mirrors and slippers.
