Need quick help - market days in Provence

Hi all,
We're leaving for Paris/Provence/Nice in 35 hours and I'm trying to do some quick research on market days in Provence. We're staying outside St. Remy. Will be arriving on a Wed. afternoon and staying until Sunday morning (at which point we're driving to Nice).

Can anyone recommend the best markets to try to visit during our time in Provence? I'm afraid we'll miss Wed's in St Remy because we won't arrive until the afternoon. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Hi--St. Remy Saturday market is quite large enough and has the provencal linens as well as food and everything else. Also, Uzes has a huge Saturday market and is a gorgeous spot, and is a short distance from St. Remy.

In Nice on Monday, there's an absolutely fabulous flea market in the Cours Saleya, where there's the fruit/vegetable/flower market the rest of the week.
