For millions of foodies around the world, the City of Light is the ultimate gastronomic Mecca. But until fairly recently, organic food-lovers who wanted to indulge in Paris’s culinary delights without sacrificing their principles could count their options on one hand. Happily, much has changed in the last few years.
There are chain stores with organic products: for example, Naturalia and Biocoop.
Thanks to a blossoming green movement, Paris now boasts of some two dozen organic restaurants and cafés; three organic farmers markets, scores of “bio” grocery stores, and a range of supermarket products marked with the green “AB” (agriculture biologiques) label.
In addition, in each arrondissement there are cozy markets with a lot of fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, fish and meat products. That’s where you can buy farm dairy products or a real cottage cheese.
