When I travel I try and take pictures of things that I don’t normally see, or things I think you may be interested in looking at. When I was in this grocery store in Paris I thought the way the veggies were displayed was really beautiful. You see how the vegetables are in baskets and the baskets have handles? Such a nice touch that makes the presentation that much more inviting and beautiful.

All of these pictures were taken in the Monoprix on Rue Du Rivoli in the Marais. Monoprix is the closest thing to Target that you will find while in Paris. Most Monoprix stores have two levels and usually have a grocery store inside.

The next three photos are of the fish section. Check out the rope, customers aren’t allowed to go past the red rope (it’s like a club entrance or something!) and have to wait until the gentleman with the white boots and white hat gives them what they need.

I don’t remember seeing anyone dressed like this in a grocery store before.

Can you see the red arrow pointing to the left? It says “Sens de la file” which is basically telling people how to line up. And guess what? Everyone was lined up to the left of that arrow, you can see a woman’s head behind the guy with the white hat on. She was the first one in line. I took these pictures quickly because I had a feeling they would have told me no had I asked and since I wanted the shots, I just did the best I could with my phone camera and hoped for the best.
