Gourmet is the supermarket Lafayette Gourmet @Cap 3000. They also have a not-too-bad section with important food (English, German, Asian, Mexican etc)

If you get over towards Italy, go to LIDL, COOP and the covered market in Ventimiglia, all usuallly carry iceberg lettuce - fresh and non-limp!  Seems it's more common in Italy than in France.belamica

The "nice fruit and veg shop in Valbonne" is in fact Dumanois Primeurs, 4 place de la Vignasse - it's n the row of shops opposite the Post Office (there is a fairly large car park inbetween), just up the stairs from (above) the Salle des Fêtes

The same row of shops includes a Pharmacie, Presse, a scrumptious Italian deli, a Boucherie/traiteur, an insurance broker, a Blanchisserie, etc.)

Once you have entered this establishment you will be hooked for life, despite the wildly exorbitant prices charged. His stuff is all A1 quality and he always stocks what no-one else has when you need it most .. like fresh mint, fresh coriander, cucumbers, kenyan beans, cèpes, etc. etc.

I do not know of the 'gourmet shop in CAP 3000', but I'm sure you'd find it easily enough if you went to the CAP 3000 shopping centre, which is next to Nice airport.
