Oh la la! The French market is back

Monday 06 June 2022


Authentic French cider, saucisson and a variety of fruits, vegetables and cheeses will be on offer in town this week as the Norman market returns.

Traders will be set up in the Royal Square from 08:00 from Wednesday to Friday, and be on Broad Street on Saturday and Sunday.

As well as foodie goodies, Jersey will be welcoming a French soaps and bags trader back for the first since 2019.

The organising Maison de Normandie team will also be holding a stall with a selection of quality products all made in Normandy: gin, P'tit Zef (a calvados-based aperitif), biscuits, honey, jam, and nougat.

Can you please explain why the Island is supporting French traders when our local market and shops are struggling? The French traders do not pay local income tax, nor do they contribute GST to our economy and last time they came over it was the local hospitality sector who ended up buying their old stock because the French traders didn’t want the paperwork hassle of reimporting their own produce back into France.

Abe, hear hear. Tip for all islanders, wait til the very end of the day, then barter with them because they don't want (as you state) to take their produce back. Don't go too early!!!
