X'se tagħmel

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 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 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. 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.
Due to the high cost of providing a solo tour, I require a minimum of 2 people in order to be able to run a tour.

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!

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.

Such a great experience. Prior to the tour beginning Jessica was very friendly and explained more she answered any questions I had. The tour itself is great ! Everything is carefully planned out and thought out. Going around the market could be very intimidating for a non native speaker with a little culinary knowledge but Jessica makes you feel at ease and by the end you will be able to navigate the market by yourself. Jessica has carefully thought about which foods to choose and she delivers the tour with so much passion it is infectious. All the food was delicious! Walking through the market is such an experience and it all ends with a feast of all the food from the freshest breads to the meats and cheeses with some nice surprises too. It all tasted delicious especially the wine and cheese pairings. It’s such a great way to spend an afternoon in Toulouse.

We had an amazing market visit / tour with Jessica in Toulouse. The entirety of the tour was very interactive and educational. Learned a to about French food and ingredients (from bread, cheeses, specialty meats and wine). We felt extremely safe and all sanitary measures were taken by Jessica to make it that may. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Toulouse area, you will not be disappointed. Jessica has embraced the culture of the city and made great connections in the community that gives the tour a very authentic vibe. Thank you Jessica!

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 :)
