Spend a morning learning the skills and secrets of French market shopping with a local foodie guide, tasting the best that Toulouse has to offer on this unforgettable and immersive market food tour!

Highlights

  • Soak up the ambiance of Toulouse’s most vibrant food hub
  • Meet passionate local producers and family businesses
  • Learn to navigate a cheese counter at one of the best fromageries in Toulouse
  • Sample the amazing duck products & charcuterie that SW France is famous for
  • Taste unique grape varieties that are only grown near Toulouse
Explore Toulouse's largest covered market with a local foodie! We've learned the secrets of French market shopping so that we can share them with you. On this tour, you'll get a taste of local life in Toulouse as you discover local wines and cheeses, learn how to spot a good baguette, sample unique local specialties, and encounter passionate local artisans and businesses.

You'll soon be eating your way through market staples like chocolatines (not pain au chocolate!), traditional baguettes, the only farm-to-counter foie gras in the market, cheese from a fromager-affineur (and learning what those words mean!), some of the best charcuterie in Toulouse, and more. 

Some items we'll taste immediately, but others go into our market basket for our final destination: a specially-reserved "tonneau" at a wine seller in the market, where we'll pair our finds with local wines made from obscure grape varieties. We finish on a sweet note with some locally-produced dessert. No need for lunch afterwards! 

Along the way, you’ll learn about food and market history, get tips for finding the best products, cultural lessons (French toasting etiquette, anyone?), and context for what you’re tasting. Afterwards, you'll get a detailed email recap, as well as other personalized resources and recommendations so that you can continue your own gourmet adventures! 

We'll be eating on our feet, as there is no seating in the market - so wear comfortable clothing and shoes and be prepared to stand/walk the whole time. Please alert us at least 24 hours in advance if you have food allergies or don't drink alcohol.

Includes:

  • Ample tastings of pastries, cheese, charcuterie, bread and more - enough to count as lunch!
  • At least 2 local wines
  • Non-alcoholic drinks available on request
  • Local foodie guide
  • History of the Victor Hugo Market and the food culture in southwest France
  • Recommendations and tips on where to eat and what to do in Toulouse
Know before you go:

  • We'll be eating on our feet, no seating! Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
  • Bring a water bottle to help us reduce waste!
  • This tour takes place rain or shine.
  • Please alert us at least 24 hours in advance if you have food allergies or don't drink alcohol.

Know before you book

Most of the time is spent indoors, but please dress appropriately (and bring an umbrella if necessary), as we begin the tour outside. Comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended, as the whole tour is spent standing or walking. To reduce environmental waste, we don’t distribute plastic water bottles, so if you would like water during the tour, please bring a reusable water bottle with you.

We are happy to accommodate the follow diets with advance notice:
  • Vegetarians
  • Pescatarians
  • No pork
  • Gluten-free 
  • Pregnant women (no raw milk cheese, cured meats, or alcohol)
  • Non-alcoholic (includes children under the age of 18)

Any of the above dietary requirements MUST be noted when booking to allow time to make arrangements for substitutions – some of which must be purchased outside the market. We ask that those with dietary restrictions book tours at least 24 hours in advance! Unfortunately, due to the selection of products available at the market, this tour is unable to accommodate vegans

Included

All food and drink samples provided on the tour. Our guests never walk away hungry for lunch! However, if you find that you usually eat more than the average person, you might consider eating a light meal before and/or after the tour.

In order to keep the tour moving, we don’t encourage shopping during the tour – especially if the group is larger.
