Many of the shops and stalls on the rue Longue-des- Capucins (the market's main axis), are run by and for Marseille's Arab community and have ornate Moorish tiled interiors and grandly evocative names. This is possibly the best place in Marseille to buy merguez (spicy sausages) and glistening tropical or Mediterranean fish, mountains of fresh fruit and vegetables, dozens of different types of olive by the scoop, unpasteurised milk sold in sachets, semolinabased Arab breads, pastilla (a North African chicken pastry with almonds and cinnamon) or French baguettes and freshly baked, dirt-cheap slices of pizza, loose spices and more! In the backstreets of this minisouk, other shops sell Indian saris, Chinese and Vietnamese groceries, Afro hair accessories, swathes of multi-coloured African fabrics, cheap sets of boules... and more!Read more
