The covered market in L’Île-Rousse: temptations galore!

U mercatu cupartu di L’Isula, locu di tutte e tentazione

At the heart of attractive Île-Rousse in the Balagne region is a wonderful market, held in the covered marketplace every day of the week in both summer and winter.

On arrival you’re greeted by a thousand delectable scents. Charcuterie, cheeses, migliacci, wines, fruit and vegetables, honey, fish caught fresh that morning... all displayed on stalls as colourful as each other.

There’s a festive and joyous atmosphere here, where sellers have been welcoming local residents and visitors with friendly chat for decades. 

It’s a sensory experience not to be missed – make sure you stop by Joseph’s charcuterie stall and taste the famous Corsican ‘spuntinu’, best accompanied by a cold glass of rosé...
