Named after the humblest of pasta shapes, the Macaroni market stand is filled with incredible treats! Olivier Gaudry owes his love of fresh, handmade pasta to his Tuscan grandfather, and he shares this passion at the local markets, while awaiting the opening of a brick-and-mortar shop. Meanwhile, he’s keeping the people of Toulouse happy with organic, Sicilian durum pasta: spaghetti like you’d get in Italy (€10/kg), tender pappardelle (€10/kg), sublime ravioli stuffed with pesto fresco (€4.50 for 100 g), and polpette al sugo (€32/kg).

Hidden gem: The mortadella from Bologna made by Silvio Scapin (€23/kg), which the pasta-head imports from Silvio directly.
