Some producers sell directly from their land or on markets, whereas others sell their goods via AMAP local produce box schemes. The SICA Maraichère cooperative buys potatoes and then sells them to market vendors and local supermarkets.
An emblematic product of the north west of the Bordeaux market gardening belt, and the pride of the town of Eysines, this potato is characterised by its undeniable taste. The local star owes its rise to fame to the phylloxera crisis that decimated vines at the end of the 19th century and thus freed up space for market crops, the Eysines potato in particular.
The motivation of producers helped give birth to a collective trademark ‘Pomme de terre d’Eysines’, meanwhile the passion that some people had for this potato resulted in the creation of the Confrérie de la Pomme de Terre d’Eysines association.
