This place is a heaven for food lovers, and the variety, abundance, and colors are mind-boggling. Endless rows of anything in one's mind, palate, or eye. Long cheese vitrines of any French variety produced. Cured ham and sausages dangling from above. Rows of fruit and vegetables, all mixed in a wonderful display of color, and hoards of customers milling around. Being lunchtime we went to the second floor where the restaurants are, however, regrettably, every single place in all the restaurants had been either occupied or reserved. So, if you plan to eat there- a reservation is a must. One important factor though is the prices. Just by cursory observation of course, and after being over a week in Toulouse, have noticed that for at least the items we used to buy at regular shops and supermarkets like Carrefour and Lidl, the Marche prices were higher. On the other hand, it could be argued of course that the difference is worth it.

We had heard so much about the Victor Hugo Market, and the fabulous restaurants above it, that we decided to pay it a visit for lunch.
The ground floor stalls are very interesting as they display a great variety of local produce ranging from fresh oysters, to calf’s feet. There is colour everywhere, and so much hustle and bustle, with people looking and buying all kinds of fresh produce. Admittingly if you are a vegetarian you might find it hard to see all the raw meat, but as a compensation there are also great wine bars and vegetable stalls to view. Prices are a little high but the goods are fresh and it’s an adventure you will not get in your home town supermarket. Go early if you want to eat in one of the second-floor restaurants as they do not take reservations, and close at 2:00pm.
To find the entrance leading to the stairs and restaurants above, is a bit of a challenge as it is not that clearly marked, but we went to the NW corner of the market on Place Victor Hugo, just up from Rue du Sale, and found the white entrance looking somewhat like a fire door tucked away there. There are a great variety of fine eating places on the second floor, but on a recommendation of a friend we choose the Le Louchebem restaurant.

TIP: On some warm summer evenings musical events are held in the market, and you can buy food and drink while you listen to the music, check the tourist office for times and dates.

If love cooking or just good food, a place to go. From foie gras, to fantastic fish, from great bread to even better cheese selection... and do not miss all the butcher with their specialties
Most of the product are local... and if you need a marche type food, just go try one of the restaurant on the second floor.

We came here late Friday lunchtime so it was quietening down, places shutting but a few bars to stand and quaff wine at which we loved. Food looked amazing so if you are in the city, have an Airbnb and can cook this place worth buying from. We then ate lunch at one of the restaurants upstairs, place buzzing!

If you haven’t been at the Marche Victor Hugo, you miss part of Toulouse. It is a very attractive place to spend lunch, especially on a Sunday noon. Get yourself a dozen of fresh oysters in the hall and then get a lovely lunch on the 1st floor. The food is good (I haven’t been in all restaurants), nothing extraordinary but correct. The atmosphere however, breaths Toulouse and a lot of locals enjoy to get lunch there. Absolutely recommended!

Amazing typical French market. Full of typical local food including a huge selection of cured hams, fish and of course the famous Toulouse sausage. Good selection of wine bars and even restaurants up stairs. Nice place to spend an hour to look around and sample local food

This market place is located in one of the most beautiful square of Toulouse but is unfortunately topped by an ugly five levels parking lot. Most of the inside booths are dedicated to fish and meat and you can find some fruits and vegetables outside.
Most of the offer is top quality food but, of course, priced accordingly!
On the first floor there’re a couple of interesting restaurants.
Open every morning but on Monday.

good prices at the fruit stands outside. I particularly like the tripe stand(for their andouilette) but lots of great stuff. And lots of super restaurants all around too!

One of the nicest markets I have been to. The restaurants above the market are great and the bars on the outside filled with locals. A very nice place to spend some time.

Nothing really out of the ordinary compared to the markets of other towns, but Marche Victor Hugo is a good place for shopping and browsing. Lots of meats, cheeses, vegetables, other specialty products. Just fun to wander through the stands, and stop to have a bite to eat. Places to stand inside and outside. Rub elbows with the locals having a coffee or glass of wine.
