The criée market in the old port of Marseille owes its name to its screamed fish prices. People in the south of France are famous for their temper, and they often had fights over fish, freshness, dubious origin and extortionate prices. It's still very quaint despite its location in the heart of a great city of 3 million inhabitants. Legend has it that a giant sardine port of Marseille blocks too. Fishermen go through the mouth of the harbor, Fort Saint Jean, to fish by the Calanques and at sea. You'll find various types of fish, which are prepared with a broth called Bouillabaisse traditional Provence.
