While the French often prefer to buy their produce at the local marché and their meats from the local boucherie, there is one exception: La Grande Épicerie.
Located in the bourgeois Parisian neighborhood of Passy in the 16th arrondissment, La Grande Épicerie is a supermarket or sorts designed for people who abhor buying low quality food in massive stores from people who have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to food. The second location of the Grande Épicerie in Le Bon Marché, this new store has been painstakingly curated, both in terms of aesthetic and merchandise, to be a stunning haven for foodies. The emphasis is on fresh produce and an almost limitless number of options. If you’re looking to prepare something a little out of the ordinary, preparing a picnic for the Jardin des Tuileries, or shopping for unusual food souvenirs, La Grande Épicerie is your new spot for one-stop shopping in Paris.
