Marché Central (food market)

Marché Central (food market) Review

For an authentic view of daily Corsican life, tour this wonderful open-air food market brimming with gastronomic delights. There is an array of local cheeses, charcuterie, breads, pastries, olives, condiments, and aromatic meats for sale. Taste samples of chorizo, nougat, liqueur, honeys, and oils from friendly foodstalls managed by original producers and farmers. Everything from artisanal candy to fresh-from-the-field vegetables and fruits, spices, and traditional indulgences like chestnut-infused beignets can be savored in an atmosphere guaranteed to be lively and local. Bring your euros—cash is the preferred method of payment.
