Good place to stock up on food before heading off to Ile Saint Honorat Island.

We stocked up with seasonal veges and fruit. There is nothing spectacular here and it is a very ordinary selection of vegetables. Don't expect to find organic foods or cheeses

We were staying in Cannes for a week, and stopped at Carrefour to load up on things we would need. Mistake. Next morning we saw the variety of fruit and Vegetables, Cheeses, available at the Forville, which was literally a 100 Metres from our flat. The quality of the fruit and Veg was much better than we got at Carrefour,... More

Enjoy fresh fruits, cheeses, charcuterie, vegetables and more at this old town market. There is a very good coffee house with a carefuly picked selection of coffees and teas. Across from it, on the other side of the market, a very good boulangerie with always smiling employees..

It's a permanent, covered market, however most stalls sell the same fruit and veg. Aside from these there are a couple of cheese counters, two selling sausages etc, and one selling Mediterranean delicacies, but that's really about it. I'd recommend looking for a smaller town with its market day - way more character and way more choice.

Great typical French market. Has everything from meat and fish to vegetables and fruits as well as flowers. On Mondays it changes to an Antiques market with everything from stuff I'm not sure anyone would consider buying like rusty screws and such to very expensive silverware. The market is located quite close to the bus station (The one where the... More

This is a great farmer's market to visit if you're in Cannes. We had the good fortune to stay in an apartment right in front of the market so we visit the market every morning. They actually start setting up at 4 AM! They are there until 1 PM. The market is huge! But there is a lot of the... More

Great place,,,very typical of the markets I've seen in France. Friendly locals appreciate you stopping to admire and even buy their goods. Never any pressure to buy...and tasting is a bonus. Not always inexpensive...but always looks super fresh. Its where the locals shop. Great experience.

Go early. The Forville market is a wonderful way to start your day in Cannes. It's like a gallery of food and flowers, all artfully displayed. And the freshness makes it all taste as good as it looks. The berries are incredibly flavourful - strawberries and raspberries in particular - and the melons! You can buy cheese and meat, but...

Well worth the visit if you are interested in fresh local produce. Be aware that it becomes a flea market on Mondays. This is different to the flea market held on Saturdays and Sundays held along Les allés de la Liberté Charles de Gaulle and the Promenade de la Pantiero.
