A trip to the land of flavors.
Corsica offers numerous themed markets dedicated to products such as almonds, charcuterie, sweet chestnuts, cheese, honey, hazelnuts, olives and figs.
These convivial, traditional events will delight visitors with a keen interest in locally produced food, with a wide choice of different markets held throughout the year. They provide a clear image of the island’s authentic identity and allow food producers to introduce visitors to their high-quality produce through competitions and other events, which often run alongside local art and craft shows.
Bocognano’s “Fiera di a Castagna” (sweet chestnut fair) and the fig fair at Peri have acquired a reputation which has spread throughout Corsica and beyond, while the olive oil fair at Sainte-Lucie de Tallano is not to be missed. These enjoyable events are the perfect opportunity for visitors to meet local farmers and producers, who are happy to provide suggestions and advice, as well as information regarding their produce. Full of atmosphere, and offering an evocative combination of scents and flavours, these markets are the living expression of a culture embedded in a love for the land – a very special way of experiencing the best of “Corsica Made” produce.
