Marseille, but make it Berkshires. 

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better selection of locally farmed cuisson sec from the Berkshire region and beyond, than the one at Bizalion’s market. Open 6 days a week (Mon.-Tues. 10-4) (Fri.-Sat. 9-4), Bizalion’s fusion cafe briefly transports its guests to a French oasis with food from the heart of the Berkshires and fine international delicacies. Located on S. Main St just outside of downtown Great Barrington, Bizalion’s offers eat-in, order-out, reserve a cheese + charcuterie platter next time you entertain or fill your fridge with delicacies from their deli. Whatever your crispy-le sandwich-loving heart desires, you’ll find it at Bizalion’s.

Almost all of their produce is homegrown and in season counters overflow with asparagus and haricot-verts. Food so fresh you’ll feel like you’re visiting le marché— handpicked local produce, local and international meats, wildflower honey, cheeses, olive oil, and herbs.

Francophiles, or those of us piggy-backing on their enthusiasm, must try the Pan Bagna or Salade Arlesienne. Pan Bagna is a Provençal classic, a traditional street sandwich of Nice. Served on a crusty baguette, beautifully cooked six-minute eggs and greens from Sheffield, accompany tuna from Spain preserved in sunflower oil, and a smear of the house-made french olive tapenade.

Quality olive oil label of the finest olive oil from a variety of Mediterranean countries is available for sale in refillable glass bottles. Join their Olive Oil Grove membership and enjoy two 750ml of rare, pure, healthy olive oil finds every other month.

Built on a 9” crispy baguette, Bizailions sandwiches travel well and are great fuel mid-hike. One of Great Barrington’s best-kept secrets and true passion project of owners Helen and Jean-François. The Café and Market is an extension of their home, representing the rhythm in which they cook, eat and live year-round.
