It’s organic expo time again! Starting tomorrow Feb. 6 – 9 at the Grande Halle de la Villette, Parc de la Villette is the Vivez Nature Paris. Entry fee is 5€ or free with an invitation that you can print off their website.
The list of exhibitors is long and I’m sure there will be some discoveries to be had. Looking through the list, some vegan and raw things caught my eye:
- Biscru: Dehydrated vegan biscuits ”powered by the sun” - savory and sweet. I’ll be heading directly there.
- Age Vert, Chlorella based drinks, chocos and more.
- Chaussure Bionat = Vegan Shoes!
- Goji Himalaya,
- Meli J0= sprouts, and also serving food.
- Mondial Ulberti’s kombucha.
- Les Produits de la vie, an all organic and vegan stand of cookies, spreads and more. Particularly wonderful.
Check here for the full exhibitor list.
There are also free conferences running throughout the four days. Some interesting topics:
- Sprouting Grains

On Friday afternoon the city got some warm air for the first time in what seems like ages and I got the urge to head to up to the Bassin de la Villette and visit the Canal Bio food co-op to pick up my groceries. (Also, the Naturalia down the road that I usually walk to has been having some stocking issues even on stuff I need all the time like tempeh, buckwheat crepes… vegetables!!) So I hopped on the metro then strolled down the canal-side.
The selection at Canal Bio is very diverse so it’s a lot of fun to load up. They have a big bulk food section including lots of dried fruit, nuts, grains and beans. A wide range of soy products, and sprouts, even garbanzo sprouts. Prices are a little lower than at my local store, but not especially cheap.
I picked up some sweet treats that I don’t often see in my neighborhood: ‘petite’ chocolate chips, caramel corn, peanut puffs, green tea bars, divine chocolate coated chestnut cookies and very reasonably priced crystalized ginger in bulk.
There are more than 300 organic food co-ops in France.
