“Lovely fresh food market with lots of choice”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Normally end up visiting here every other day when I visit cannes.

The market is great, everything is so fresh and there is so much choice including vegetables, fish, meat, freshly made pasta, local cheeses, olives etc etc.

Very good value as well and much better quality than the local supermarkets.

Would highly recommend.

Worth noting its closed on Mondays.

“Fresh and mostly organic fruits and vegetables”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

First, if you drive there, don't bother to try to find a parking spot. Go straight to the municipal Forville Parking. It is cheap and you always find parking. Then, you will dive into the local crowd shopping, everyday but Monday, for fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh cut flowers, fishes (before 9 am if you want to have a larger choice), and all the meat, patés, cheese and sausages that the French adore! You can buy from any stands, they are all good. On Sundays, the farmers themselves go "down" to Forville to sell their own products. It is fun, colorful, noisy and people are very nice. Bring cash, not many accept credit cards. Don't worry, this market is cheap as compared to regular food stores. Bring also your own shopping bags. You will need them when you leave the market with food for a week!

Before going back to your car, stop for a drink at the Bar La Terrasse and buy a French baguette at the bakery Moulin de Païou. You will not regret it!!

“no wonder it's N 1 on Tripadvisor”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This place or marché is so authentic, for produces and Cheeses and foie gras.... I went there with my family, we parked about a bloc away in the parking Structure. As a tourist, you will leave this marché with some bags in your hands, from cheeses to tea or any other french delicacy!
Worth visiting!

“Marche Forville forever!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Fresh vegetables and fruit, nice people, beautiful colors. It's not even all that expensive! I recommend that you visit the stands that have signs saying that their products come from their own farm, because there are stands that import their veggies. Also, don't forget to visit the italian stand selling cheeses and delicious prociutto, salami and other goodies - located in the middle of all the vegetable stands. After the shopping's done, take a break and watch the commerce. Absolutely wonderful! And don't forget to buy fresh flowers - regular florists can't compete, neither price wise, nor the length of time your flowers will stay alive!
