Other interesting shops

Local Markets

The best and most entertaining food shops of all, especially at Caussade (Monday) Villefranche-de-Rouergue (Thursday), the covered markets of Victor Hugo and Les Carmes in Toulouse (daily except Sunday) and the Toulouse street market on the Boulevard de Strasbourg there (not Sunday). Also Gaillac (Friday), Cahors (Saturday) Limogne (Sunday) and Saint Antonin-Noble-Val (Sunday - but very crowded). Wonderful displays of fresh fruit and vegetables, some from small independent growers, otherwise from itinerant market-traders. Also cheeses, local dishes such as aligot (mashed potato with cheese), sausages fresh and dried, and of course, foie gras.
