3. Hidden Gem Toulouse: Marche des Carmes
Probably everybody knows the Victor Hugo market, but we would like to recommend a less crowded one: Marché des Carmes. The hall is home to around 50 stalls with fruits, veggies, meat, bread and other tasty foods. If you are staying in an apartment with a kitchen during your stay, fill your bags here with fresh ingredients and cook yourself a delicious dinner.

4. Hidden Gem Toulouse: Sovaga Café
You’ll immediately feel at ease when you step into Sovaga, a restaurant with gorgeous décor only a stone’s throw away from the Place du Capitole. In the midst of wooden furniture and hanging plants, you can enjoy healthy, gluten-free and vegan street food dishes. We would especially recommend to stop by for an afternoon piece of cake as their baked goods are simply a dream! Most of them are made out of raw, organic and local ingredients. Being as healthy as cake can get, you can eat two without feeling guilty!
