Fiver-a-day organic

Feeding one person well for a fiver a day

Shopping list

This is a reminder of how much things cost from one of the regular markets near me, my local organic shop, or the supermarket.

The organic shop is the local Biocoop franchise, part of an organic chain in France. It is a good source of oils, vegetables, pulses and others but it’s ludicrously expensive for anything in a jar. The supermarkets I generally go to are Super-U Carrefour, or sometimes even Lidl, depending on where I am and what I’m after.

On the whole, anything organic bought in a supermarket is the supermarket own-brand. The prices shown are the average per-kilo price unless indicated otherwise by the table (or common sense).

A fresh baguette from my local boulangerie is 1,05€. A pain aux raisins, croissant or pain au chocolat is 1€. They are not organic, but they are local. And very nice.
