A place

to meet

Born of a desire to create a store offering short distribution circuits, it took a few years before the SCIC (Société Coopérative d’Intérêt Collectif) was born. The direct encounter between producers and consumers is one of its key points. Here, farmers manage the store, participate in the life of the premises, and are in contact with customers. To sell at Les Giroflées, you first need to be involved in organic and/or peasant farming, be located no more than 80km away, and be willing to invest in the store, but above all in a collective approach. ” Selling in a farmers’ store is a real opportunity: you have premises at your disposal, and an established clientele! “. Today, 21 associate farms and more than 50 farms on consignment sell and participate in the store. You’ll find everything you need for a healthier, more respectful lifestyle:seasonal fruits, dried vegetables, local wines, farmhouse and artisanal beers, beef, poultry, pork, lamb, duck, veal, field and seasonal vegetables, jams, herbal teas, syrups, eggs, honey and all its derivativess, vinegars, cow, goat and ewe cheeses, breads, pasta, charcuterie, preserves, etc. Here, ” we want to promote local production that respects the environmentand animals, while offering quality food to the local population “.

A place


As you enter the store, you’ll notice the beauty of the building, so atypical. At Les Giroflées, you can do your shopping, but you can also visit an exhibition. Established in 1930, the premises were first a supermarket, then a hardware store, a bicycle store… Today, you can find local products and take the time to discover artists ! Visits upstairs are free of charge, and a drink is offered at each vernissage. “The aim is to enable people to discover art in a place that is both exceptional in terms of architecture and commonplace in terms of shopping!
