Arrived at 9am on a Saturday, love a market. This is much smaller than I expected but if I was local I would be here every week. Lots of pride in produce presentation. Not much to buy as a tourist to take home but bars,...More

Worth a visit just to check out the fresh fish and meats. I was very surprised that it did not smell. Very cool to see how the locals shop.

The place is brilliant and you get to not only find good food (fish, duck, cheeses, etc.), but also learn a lot about it. The sellers would gladly explain everything to you! On the other hand, and even considering that you will find good products,...More

We visited the market as soon as we arrived in Toulouse. It was lunchtime but we didn’t want to have a full meal. What fun we had visiting different stalls and buying our food. We found a “table” set up in a barrel close to...More

Though I'd been living in Toulouse for a while, I had never visited the Victor Hugo Market. Then came the Nights at Victor Hugo events (You can find them on Facebook :)). The concept is simple yet efficient and very pleasurable. Every once in a...More

I think the market is open every day but the best times to go are early in the morning when it's busy and produce are the freshest, after 1pm there isn't much happening.
