Throughout December, Corsica is decked out in its most beautiful finery to celebrate the magic of Christmas through its markets. True ambassadors of the island's tradition and conviviality, these markets mark the kick-off to the end-of-year festivities and are much more than just an opportunity for festive shopping, they represent an immersion in the authenticity of Corsican gastronomy and crafts.

Island gastronomy in the spotlight


 These Christmas markets are a real showcase for Corsica's gastronomic riches, highlighting local know-how and authentic flavours. Visitors can wander between the small snow-covered chalets selling cheese, charcuterie, Corsican beers and wines, honeys scented with essences from the island, cakes with "nustrale" flavours and many other delights! Corsica's Christmas markets are the perfect opportunity to put together a unique festive meal.
