Organic Restaurants, Markets and Delivery Services in Paris

(This is the second of two posts written by Lora Krulak, a vegetable expert, nutritionist and recipe re-creator who is currently living in Paris. Her first post appeared yesterday.)

Last month I walked into a client’s house and on his kitchen counter was the most random yet beautiful arrangement of produce, truffles and bread. When he saw me staring at the haphazard array, he immediately got a bit defensive and said, “What can I do with rutabaga, fingerling potatoes and basil? Do you have a recipe for all this stuff?”

He told me about the weekly delivery he’d been getting from Le Haut Du Panier, the Grande Dame of organic/bio food delivery in Paris – cheeses, breads, fruits, vegetables, meats, and even oysters and books from organic producers around Paris. Truly extraordinary. The website alone makes you want to buy and eat everything! Honestly, they make Fresh Direct look like a sad midnight deli.

Le Haut Du Panier is not alone. There are similar services sprouting up around the country but mostly they’re based in Paris.

Comparable to the CSAs in the states, one can order a box and pick it up, with costs starting at about 8 Euros ($US 11) per week and scaling up depending on what’s ordered. Not too hefty a price to pay for such an assortment of fresh organic produce.

Bio is becoming “la mode” in Paris, with crowds and lines at markets and organic restaurants. There is a fully organic trade show of just organic/bio products next week, with workshops on everything from how to compost in your closet to how to make your own organic perfume.

I’ll be attending a wedding brunch on Sunday, and word has it that the caterers are fully organic, as are the bakers, the bubble tea and the chocolatiers.

And you’ll need reservations to sample Bob’s Kitchen’s organic, gluten-free pancakes each Sunday, but it’s well worth the call. The real organic maple syrup sends those over the top.

Below I have shortlisted some organic hot spots in Paris, including organic food delivery services, health food shops, outdoor markets, restaurants, and juice bars.

  4. Hello,

    Do you by any chance know of a place that will do organic soups and deliver them (to a hospital) in Paris?

    thanks so much. Trying to research better food options for my ailing mother in law.
