Organic Produce

Organic foods - called locally 'Bio' produce- are now very popular in France, and increasingly available.  Most supermarkets - including the Intermarché in Aulnay - have Bio sections both for fresh produce, for packaged goods and for Bio wines.  

In addition, there are specialist Bio shops springing up - the closest being Saintonge Bio, located at 27 Avenue du Point du Jour, Saint-Jean d'Angely (just by the roundabout on the ring road, close to the Butcherie restaurant and the E.LleClerc petrol station.  This shop is only open during the week, Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:30 and from 14:30 to 18:30.  Biomonde has a number of stores, including in Royan, la Rochelle, Rochefort and Saintes.
