If you’re staying in Cannes, you have to try some of the markets. Marché Forville is perhaps the best known, although there are others worth checking. You can pick up ultra-fresh fish and vegetables, cheap underwear and sunglasses, get some good wine or some cute simili-antiques to bring home (vintage postcards are always a gas).
