    Marché Forville - Market.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This covered market is a few streets behind the Hôtel de Ville / Townhall of Cannes at the eastern edge of the Suquet. The building dates from 1929 in a "neo-regionalist" style by architect Henri Bret. The exterior has an ochre colour; the inside is just functional with apparent concrete structures.
    There was already a market here built in wood in 1884. In former centuries this place was outside the town "forville" meaning "hors ville" and was used by the fishermen of Cannes to sell their catch.

    Vegetables, fruit, fish and flowers are the main products sold each day from 7 - 13 h.
    On Monday it is a "brocante" flea market.
    You'll find here locals - in the early morning to get the best fish - and tourists.
    I always like markets in France for the local products and for the "accent" of the region.
