If you’re looking to vivre a happy life, make sure to check out the carefully-sourced goods at Vivre(s)! In the middle of the Goutte-d’Or neighborhood, Sonia Aïssaoui and Sydney Verroy – who are a team both at home and in their épicerie – fill up the shopping totes of a customer base with sky-high standards. Their shop feels like a Sunday farmer’s market, and you’ll find seasonal fruits and vegetables sourced directly from Île-de-France farms, charcuterie from Les Jumeaux in Les Lilas, sourdough bread kneaded in Saint-Denis, coffee from the neighboring Populaires café, Plaq chocolate bars, plus a few cookbooks to feed your soul. Our only complaint? There are no tables to sit at and prolong your visit! // Sofia Sétif
