What a great place to get fresh produce, meat, cheese, bread and flowers! And people watch! It is a bustling place but the people seem to be polite and not pushy. If you don't speak French, it is ok. Point and describe how much or the vendors will find someone who speaks English. A delightful experience.

A really nice market place with a wide range of fresh products. Fish, vegetables, fruits and much more in a nice and vivid atmosphere. Prices are rather high.

When we're in Cannes we always come here and buy breakfast every day. It is not very cheap, but everything is fresh and delicious. Fresh flowers, cheese, bread, fruit and meats. And take a cup of coffee in one of the cafés along the sides.

Wonderful market full of local products, even just to look. Open on Sundays but closed on Mondays (morning only). Near by, (Rue des Halles) a small but wonderful cheese shop for French cheese lovers. The owner doesn't speak much English (a bit of Italian), but helpful and friendly and wonderful selection of cheese!

A great market with local produce from around the region. Nothing more than you would expect in France. Worth a visit just to look if not to buy.

I exclusively come to Forville on mondays, for the antiques, flea market and - last but not least - incredible selection of french used books, all priced at 1 € by local "bouquiniste" Dimitri Davidoff, a tall good-looking ruffian of a fellow who is 100% french in spite of his name! Dimitri has read most of the hundreds of books... More

Staying close by Forville Market offered the unexpected bonus of shopping like a Cannois! Pack a picnic for your day trip to Illes de St Honorat: trays of berries, magnificent local cheeses in a diversity I've never seen before. Vegetables, olives, tapenade, nuts and fresh truffles - tres bon! The market is surrounded by cafes and patisseries and classic al... More

My husband, son and I visited the market on a Monday, which is the day the market is filled with antique vendors. Plenty of awesome, good quality, unique antiques to look through with a wide range of price points. There are some pricy objects, but you can also find great deals! I heartily recommend a visit if you are in... More

We love to visit the Forville market on a Saturday morning and are always enchanted by the beautiful produce, so well displayed. Its always busy but not too overwhelming and there is a nice mix of local Cannois ladies and gents going about their business and a richly cosmopolitan blend of tourists from all over the world, clearly enjoying the...
