Owner description: This traditional French outdoor market specializes in quality produce harvested by local farmers.
Reviewed 31 October 2013

For anyone who likes to browse around food or antiques stands, there isn't much in the world that beats a market in France, and Forville is a classic. If you are a foody, or like to venture out to flee markets and such places, you cannot come to Cannes and not go to the Foreville Market.
Opened every day, I think, it is just awesome. You can browse through an amazing assortment of fresh vegetables, meats of all kinds (fresh and cured), and, the most important for the area (in my opinion), the freshest fish around!
Walking around, I so wished I still lived in Cannes and could shop there a few times a week. I saw a stand selling nothing but wild mushrooms, Chanterelles, Morels, and many other varieties... I could almost taste the wild mushroom omelet I could whip out with those!!
On non-food market days, you can check out the "flee-market", and that description certainly does not do it justice. Again, anything from old plates, books, cutlery, fine china, and much much more.
Do yourself a favor, take a couple of hours, take your time, smell the air, enjoy... then go have lunch in one of the many restaurants around that get their produce, meat, and fish from the market (I recommend Le Bistrot Gourmand).
This is a huge part of what Provence is all about. There is another market in town, the "Marché Gambetta, but it is much smaller than Foreville, and the surrounding area is not as nice, so make sure you don't confuse the two. Enjoy!

We stayed very close to Forville Market during our stay in Cannes. Really close! We could hear the market being set-up every morning, so we were ready to shop really early! Each morning I would venture into a wonderland of super fresh, super colourful and highly delicious produce. Without doubt the locals stall of choice was the one nearest to the LeaderPrice supermarket. It always had queues for their fruit and veg, but the range of other delicious treats was something I'd not seen before. If it grew, you could probably buy it at Forville. Apart from fruit and veg in abundance, there is also fresh fish (get there early for the best of the catch), pasta, sauces, mushrooms, meat, sausages of every kind, cheese and deli items. Fabulous if you love food! On monday there is a bric a brac market, but every other day it is food, food, food! Well worth a visit.

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.
