Le Pétrin Médiéval is a little bakery close to our place. The name means "the medieval kneading-trough", which doesn't sound half as nice, I'm afraid. They happen to be the bread suppliers for Rose Bakery, where you can enjoy their excellent "pain intégral" with your salad.
Le Pétrin Médiéval sells an array of rustic breads and no-frills pastries, which all look very promising, and I bought a small loaf of their olive whole wheat bread the other day. It looked so nice and tasted so delicious, I thought I'd share. I intend to try the walnut version of this next time...
On another note, I went to pick up my second Campanier order yesterday. The vegetable basket contained a lettuce, a head of broccoli, a celery root, two little bulbs of garlic, and a string bag of Charlottes, those small thin-skinned and sweet-fleshed potatoes. In the fruit basket were nine blood oranges, two huge pomelos, and seven cute little pears.
Maybe it's just me, but few things can compete with the joy of having produce drawers bursting at the seams!
