“Great open-air market from 7.45am.”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Corsican cheeses and sausages that you can taste first... newly fried fishcakes, doughnuts...samosas... Corsican jams and cakes, fish and meat...Plenty to watch and photograph, and the ubiquitous Napoleon overlooking the goings on!

“cosy marked place”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

In this place you can buy local food and wine. Many different types of chorizo and bread, pastries and french nougat are available, and of course, cheese.

“Excellent little market selling local produce”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

In Ajaccio for the day having arrived on the Thomson Dream cruise liner. Lots of local produce on sale at the market in Place Foch such as Corsican wine, herbs and nougat. We would have liked to have bought much more than we did but we were not in a position to keep fresh meats and cheese in our cabin as this was at the start of our cruise. The market is well worth a visit.

“Market place with local specialities”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

This market place offers all the local specialities that you will also find in supermarkets. But besides that, you will be able to purchase home produced liqeurs that you won't find anywhere else. Just ask for it. If you like eau de vie, they have some produced on chestnut, strawberry tree, myrtle and many others.
