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.

It was Sunday, and this place was packed. Great produce. Samples of cheeses and meats. We enjoyed a light lunch in an adjoins cafe, whilst a band set up and started playing. Vibrant and interesting.

While the rest of the city is slowly waking up, hit the market when it opens around 7 am. The cafes along the side of the halls are open for coffee and pastries, then get produce, olives, meats, cheeses, teas and herbs in this "real" market - no touristy olive bowls or lavender sachets here. Super easy and cheap parking... More

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.
