Marché Biologique Raspail

Marché Biologique Raspail is THE Marché Bio I visit every Sunday. I remember how I discovered it on my second day in Paris when I had moved back here in 2013. It was on a Sunday morning, when everything else was closed in my area and I was at home at Rue de Varenne where I was living..trying to find organic stores on Google and suddenly I stumbled on a page where they had been writing about this market. How on earth did I not know about this market when I lived here before? I practically ran over to Boulevard Raspail and stepped into a heaven of organic and local produce. I couldn’t have found a better area to live in. Now I live even closer to this market and it’s the highlight of my week going there filling my bag with organic delicious fruits and veggies..and to talk with the stand owners, you always learn something new!

I always buy 100% organic food and non-GMO at home, but also eco-friendly products etc. Supporting local farmers, eating food with more nutrients and fewer pesticides…simply food that makes your body happy :-)

At the organic market I buy organic fruits and veggies for my whole week and for the rest of the organic products I use at home I go to Les Nouveaux Robinson, a cooperative organic supermarket, also just a few minutes from where I live, Naturalia and Bio c’est Bon. If you want to buy organic food in Paris it’s really not difficult ;-)

A part from Marché Bio Raspail I know there is an organic market at Boulevard des Batignolles on Saturdays and on this page you’ll find all organic markets in Paris. Also on markets such as the one at Bastille you’ll find stands where they have organic produced.

Below you’ll find a few photos I’ve taken on what you can expect to find at Marché Bio Raspail, however I took them in January…so don’t expect you’ll find everything that is shown right now. Will try to take some photos next time so you can see what you can find during summer time ;-)

    Hello Solli, these are all gorgeous photos you took. I especially like the first photo and the organic oysters (opened and squeezed with some lemon). The carrots, kale, and the lentil soup, ahhh, yum :)

    I’m also a loyal client at Naturalia and Bio c’est Bon;) As for the markets, I usually go to the nearest one on the avenue des Termes. And I never leave it without completely charging my car!:))

    Hi Solli…love your blog and photos! I have never ever seen Romanesco broccoli ; it is so perfectly formed it looks like a work of art…not to mention very photogenic broccoli! I don’t think we have this in the USA.
