In brief: Depends

It may be as short as 1 week, but usually lasts several weeks, and up to 6 weeks, depending on the type and severity of break.

In brief: 3 weeks

The small blood vessels are broken when you have a broken foot, and just like a black eye, the bruising will usually go away in 3 weeks.
