From their grandma Renée, a farmer in the Manche department, sisters Rachel, Océane and Laura Cahu inherited a (good) love of the land and a zero-waste approach to life, which they now perpetuate in their modern neighborhood épicerie (a big neon sign, immaculate shelves, stylish carts). Goods are sold in bulk and everyday products are carefully sourced by Rachel, a former psychologist specialized in disordered eating, and Océane, who used to work in leather goods. The day we went, we filled up our shopping bags with organic broccoli harvested in Brittany, butter from the Ferme Val de Sienne, lomo from the Landes department, tomato-eggplant-basil sauce by À Côté, along with a few drinks, including lemon and basil iced tea, craft beer and Dagobert coffee. And to honor to granny Renée, the unsold produce is used to cook the small dishes of the day! // Adrien Bir 

The hidden gem: A jar of onion jam from Les Papilles Sauvages (€5.50 for 220 g).
