Are you looking to become a bit more responsible about food? Do you like eating local and buy products from local farmers? There are more and more organic and local shops in and around Toulouse, places to order local farm products, to order paniers (veggie and fruit baskets) and even the first zero waste drive in France.
Organic & local food shops
Biocoop is a chain and has several stores in Toulouse and in the surrounding areas (Colomiers, Pibrac, Plaisance-du-Touch, Tournefeuille, etc.). They recently opened a new shop in Blagnac, which is really amazing: they have very good bread, a wide selection of meat and cheese and you can even have lunch there. Every store is a little different, but in general, they have good products for reasonable prices. Find the full list with shops here.
Bio C’ Bon is also a chain with five stores in Toulouse. They offer different “paniers” (vegetable boxes) every week: for 10€ and a special “panier bébé” for 8€, which allows you to prepare baby food for one week fresh at home (recipes included!). If you have their loyalty card you can participate at their naturopathic workshops for free – you just need to book your place in the store.
