Are independent grocers the librarians of beautiful products? In this former bookshop, eco-journalist Jill Cousin and her sidekick Saskia Porretta, who used to work in food marketing, deal out their carefully chosen provisions twice a week, most of which are sourced locally: incredible lamb and piment d’Espelette terrine from Emmanuel Faye, dents-de-loup cookies that you’ll want to devour, lovely artisanal gomasio from the Drôme, delightful sous-vide smoked octopus from the Île de Groix, bread and viennoiseries from the Boni bakery (on Saturdays)… Along with a few inedible items, like ceramics by Judith Lasry or beautiful bouquets of flowers from Fleurs d’Arles. As a thoughtful homage to the shop’s past, the duo also recommends a few books: for Saskia, it’s Au 10, rue des Jardins by Felicita Sala, while Jill suggests Une année avec la terre by Samuel Lewis. // J.M.

Hidden gem: The massive cornichons preserved in white vinegar and spices (€7.80 a jar), which go perfectly with the lamb terrine.
