Le Zingam

Lelio Stettin and Tania Grawitz’s Le Zingam is quite the charmer! In 2014, the former mathematician and the ex-agronomist, united by a shared love of cauliflower, planted the first seeds of this affordable neighborhood grocery store, before transplanting it to other parts of Paris. On their rather chaotic stands, you’ll find organic produce from their network of farmers that won’t bleed you dry: leafy vegetables from Mélanie Martin in the Landes department, a diverse selection of potatoes, cabbage and squash, Sicilian citrus grown and ripened on the Galline Felici farm or melons from the Ferme du Guinouguier when they’re in season. As for the épicerie section, you’ll find pizzettas from Café du Coin and a very good ham that makes its way into the to-go sandwiches (€4.50 for the Parisien sandwich). The (zin)game is on! // S.O.

Hidden gem: The best jams in mainland France, prepared by the Ferme des Alrassets in the Ardèche. Hats off to their raspberry and apricot jams in particular (€5 for 240 g)!
