“Come face to face with the real Marseille”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

One is transported into a different world while walking around the Noaille Markets. Buzzing with activity, this is reminiscent of the bazaars of Marrakesh or Cairo. At any rate, one forgets that Marseille is still in France. The colourful fabrics, the herbs and spices, and the exotic produce on offer are only the beginning. The air is heavy with mingled scents of street food, promising to make a quick and delicious lunch. The vendors are friendly and shout bargains for their wares. The human element is unmistakable.
In the vicinity are plenty of restaurants offering Moroccan, Tunisian, Lebanese cuisines. The food is wholesome and hearty, and the price is unbelievable. Desserts like Turkish delights, baklavas and semolina cakes are served with strong mint tea. It is a completely different dining experience from the standard French fare.
This area is definitely a must-see for visitors. You have not visited Marseille until you have walked around the Noaille markets.
