Forville Market, Cannes is open daily Tuesday - Sunday 07h00 - 13h00 and what a bustling blast of colour and aromas it is!
This is the kind of market that people get excited about, the produce available is so varied and fresh.
The fish is all caught locally and put onto beds of ice that morning, even at midday there are some fish still flapping about which just proves how fresh they are. It is all varied but obviously depends upon what is caught that day, you will usually find a good range of seafood and all sorts of white, oily, exotic fish and eels.
The flower market at the end of the hall is extensive and would easily rival Cours Saleya in Nice. The majority of the flowers are grown locally just outside Antibes and the sellers set up in the market daily with freshly cut stems at very reasonable prices.
You can find all the fruit and vegetables in season your heart could desire as well as locally produced honey, olive oil, tapenades, olives, freshly made pastas, cheeses, meat and charcuterie.
Have a good look around as prices vary among vendors.
Marche Forville is open all year round although there are slightly fewer stalls during the winter months.
Just round the corner is Rue Meynardiers so once you've picked up all your produce in the market you can wander down there and find some exquisite bread and cake shops, chocolate shops, cheeses and ready made produce to add to your shopping basket.
If bimbling through food markets is your thing then Forville won't disappoint.
