Wat je gaat doen

Join me for a unique experience in "the belly of Toulouse" - the Marché Victor Hugo, Toulouse's largest covered market!

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 MOF 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 my 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 chocolates. 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. When it's over, you'll get an email listing where we went and what we tasted, as well as any special recommendations you asked for.
Other things to note
We'll be eating on our feet, no seating.
Please alert me at least 24 hours in advance if you have food allergies or don't drink alcohol.
Open-minded vegetarians can get by, vegans no.

I'm Jessica, an American living in Toulouse. I’ve called "La Ville Rose" my home since 2017 and I’ve spent that time exploring all of its delicious nooks and crannies. I’m a former cheesemonger, certified French Wine Scholar™, and French food obsessive.

I founded a company - Taste of Toulouse - to lead food tours, as well as host wine & cheese tasting events. My goal is to help make French food and culture less intimidating and share my love of Toulouse and its amazing local businesses. I LOVE helping people get comfortable shopping at markets, learn about what they like, discover the huge role that food plays in everyday French life - and have a great time doing it!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll visit at least 5 (usually more) small businesses and artisans located in or just outside the Marché Victor Hugo. They have all been rigorously tested and approved (tough job!), not only for quality and taste - but also for their knowledge, friendliness, and customer service. We only visit the best!

I have special arrangements with many of them to reserve or let us taste specific items, talk with an owner, or reserve our spot.

Wonderful experience with Jessica, she is very knowledgeable about the food and wine. She catered to our needs perfectly by making the tour vegetarian. Highly recommended!

Jessica's tour was an incredible experience! It was really well-curated to teach us about Toulouse, general French culture & cuisine, and best practices at the market. We also enjoyed a delicious tasting after. Highly recommended :)

Es war wirklich eine ausgezeichnete Tour mit der Gastgeberin. Sie erklärt sehr viel über sich selbst am Anfang, und dann gehts los auf dem Markt. Sehr entspannte Stimmung durch 3.5 Std! Sehr, sehr zu empfehlen. Beste Preis leistungs Verhältnis.

We LOVED Jessica's tour! She's so knowledgeable, was a great navigator and it was so great to learn about so many different facts about bread, Toulouse, and the cuisine. The tasting she put together was incredible, so delicious and also with opportunities to customize it to our tastes. If you're in Toulouse, do not miss Jessica's tour! You'll love it.

This tour is exceptional and well worth your time and money. Not only is the day full of delicious food, but Jessica has done so much to make what can sometimes be an intimidating environment for those new to French cuisine or who don’t speak French into a space for learning and discovery; she is organized, accommodating, and you can see how much she’s become part of the local community by how she interacts with the vendors in the market. We left feeling like we genuinely had new knowledge about what to look for when choosing bread and cheese and wine, which far exceeded our expectations. If you’re in Toulouse, even for only a day or two, this is a great way to learn a bit about the city and its history as well as Southwest France and its unique cuisine.
