This covered market, located in the heart of the city centre was made famous in the UK by Rick Stein’s television programme touring France for culinary delights. The Victor Hugo Market is open from Tuesday to Sunday and holidays from 06:00 to 14:00. With over 86 retailers, selling excellent products, it is a delight for anybody interested in gastronomy. There are also some great restaurants above the market.

I take my daughter first to the carousel in Place Wilson, then on a taste excursion to Victor Hugo market. We wander around tasting Spanish ‘jamon,’ different cheeses and looking at the variety of food. (Helen Saks)
