Toulouse: Victor Hugo Market Guided Food Tour with Tastings

1. Toulouse: Victor Hugo Market Guided Food Tour with Tastings

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.

What people are saying about Victor Hugo Market, Toulouse

We are happy to have booked this well-organized tour. Ally Mitchell guided us professionally with her extensive knowledge of the huge range of food on offer on the market. She informed us a lot about the food habits and the history of the market. And last but not least, she let us try out the many traditional and extremely tasty products as well as the wine that goes with them. She staged it perfectly. We would like to thank her especially for this. The three of us had a successful morning. Any time!

Tour guide Ally was fantastic. Great knowledge about the Market, its history and the foods that we tasted. If we were to visit the market without her I can imagine it would be very overwhelming. Would highly recommend.

Alex was an excellent guide. We enjoyed all the food and wine and learning more about the market and it's history. The email after the tour with all the info and additional information was also appreciated.
