Hi,

I had tried finding a supermarket in Paris (not the suburbs) that sold prune juice. After going to several food marts, and finding every single kind of juice available on Earth, except prune juice, I found it! And, as an added bonus, the only type I found is BIO, at Monoprix. I also recently tried their Stevia-based sweetener (Pure Via), and found it very good.

Like Leader Price, Monoprix is slowly expanding its house-brand offer of BIO foods. Leader Price BIO foods are often very affordable. And Carrefour sells a (fresh) BIO banana that is the same price as the non-BIO one.

There are some very wonderful BIO shops in Paris, but I find them usually so much more expensive than the regular mart price, especially for the foods that I am interested in buying. Dry goods aren't much different, or some kinds of foods sold in bulk volumes, but about everything else is still quite pricy.

Do you have any tips on particular BIO foods that we can easily find in Paris, with prices still in the "normal" range?
