France is known for its fresh-food stalls, and Cannes is no exception. The city has some fantastic markets where you can find delicious things to eat, as well as beautiful art, great clothes, home-made trinkets and intricate jewellery. Here’s our guide to the top 10 markets in Cannes.
Marché de la Truffe caters to a very niche crowd. This annual truffle market, held in January, is located in the beautiful village of Grasse, near Cannes, which is worth a visit for its perfume factories alone. It’s held at the Bastide Saint-Antoine, a very chic hotel-restaurant where world-renowned chef Jaques Chibois hosts a truffle extravaganza in a 17th-century Provençal mansion. At Bastide Saint-Antoine, the views are sublime and the food is amazing – everything you’d expect from a Michelin-starred chef. The market includes gourmet tastings, agricultural shows and even demonstrations with truffle-hunting dogs.
