Today We came across this little gem of a shop in Melle, France. We are in the second week of our holidays and have been enjoying fantastic French weather and Culture. Near to where we are staying is the town of Melle in the Poitou Charentes region. We come here regularly and love the rural nature of this area.
Imagine my surprise when we saw this shop offering a fantastic range of health foods. What’s more they were selling quinoa by the kilo as well as in boxes. They also had Quinoa Flakes, Quinoa Milk and Baby Food with quinoa. I have never seen these products on sale over the counter any where in the UK.
I bought the shop out of Quinoa Flakes and have a litre of the Quinoa milk to try out when I get home. I left the baby food as I didn’t know what I would do with it
There were many other great health foods on sale with a strong emphasis on local products such as Fruit, Vegetables and wine. We were there for about 10 minutes and it was busy the whole time. There is obviously a good number of regular customers who know about L’Epicerie Ferrmiere. I know I get easily excited about this sort of thing but I was truly astounded to see such a high quality healthy food shop in Melle.
