Au Marché de Noël

If you visit the Place du Capitole de Toulouse during this time of the year, you will find yourself surrounded by various delicacies and produce of Southern France and also from the rest of the world.

You have the famous nougats and candied fruit stands

These candied fruits are oozing with sugary sweetness… gives me toothache just by looking at them
Nougats are extra-soft and chewy here in France, but also extra-expensive

Some tea to go with the sweets

You wouldn’t believe how crazy they are about tea in these parts… good for me!
Various spices from abroad
Spices, mostly of African origin
Some Himalayan and pink rock salts

Some well-loved local snacks

Aligot and Tartiflette stand — these snacks are made from potatoes and cheese — both of which are staple food here in France

And hot wine to beat the cold.

I should try this
There was also entertainment for the kids.
Stage show for kids
And for the not-so-young ones.
You can throw pie on this guy’s face for a Euro

This year, we went during the day, but last year we went during the evening, and it looked like this:

Bonne fête et joyeux noël, tout le monde!
