A few steps from La Croisette boardwalk and at the foot of the ancient neighborhood of Le Suquet, Cannes' large covered market, Marché Forville is ready to meet your shopping needs. Located along one of the Côte d'Azur's best gourmand streets, Forville Market is the place for foodies. Visitors enjoy varied eating and shopping experiences among its produce and flower stalls.
Since 1934, Forville Market has been one of the most important markets in the region and the supplier of choice for restaurants. If you are looking for a shopping experience away from big brands and designer items, Forville is the place to be along with two other top markets in the city, Gambetta and La Bocca.
A feast for your taste buds
A trip to Forville Market is sure to delight all your senses. Open all year round in the mornings, this market offers you a wide selection of local gastronomic delicacies as well as fruit, vegetables, seafood, and flowers.
Foodies are in for a treat at Forville—this is where locals pick up locally produced honey, olive oil, tapenades, olives, freshly made pasta, meats, and more. Try different types of cheese, buy a roasted chicken, or pick up some flowers for your loved ones. The colorful selection of flowers you'll see is grown locally outside Antibes, and it is one of the best spots in the market for taking great pictures.
If you are visiting on a Monday, be aware that the food stalls are replaced by an all-day flea market, or brocante in French.
Buy some cheese and wine from the market to take a taste of Cannes with you, and enjoy a French Riviera-style get-together with your friends back home.
Other markets in the city
Markets, or marchés as they are known in French, are a great place to find local handicrafts and produce. If you are looking to explore a little more, then you can head to the covered stalls at Gambetta and La Bocca. Along with Forville, these are the three largest markets in Cannes.
At Gambetta, you will find leather goods, jewelry, and more, while La Bocca offers plenty of clothes, shoes, produce, and chocolate varieties.
