Marche Forville Cannes - Provencal Sunday Market in Cannes

Hidden away in Cannes la Bocca (the main quarter of Cannes) is the Marche Forville. This is the best Provencal market in Cannes. It is also be considered one of the best, if not the best, on the French Riviera.

This is very much a market for local people. It is virtually tourist free. The Sunday market is a rendezvous for many Cannois. From the local tradesman, restaurant owners and hoteliers to the mayor himself may be seen here mingling and buying fresh local produce.

Guests are welcome to the local market for local people

Local merchants and producers pack the covered Forville Market once a week, on Sunday. The best of the newly arrived flowers, fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats and fish are on display and sale here. Most have been caught, grown or produced locally and are of great quality.

This market is a true taste of local Cannes. There is a specific taste of provence and the Riviera here that you can taste and smell. If you want a real feel of the real town, this is the place to get it.

The only warning that should be given is "watch your elbows". The frenzy of local French people reaching for fresh market produce plays havoc on them.
