Welcome Bio: the temple for organic, ethical and local products in Paris
Focus on Welcome Bio, a group of three shops located on the rue Boulle, in the 11th arrondissement of Paris: Welcome Bio Magasin, Welcome Bio Cuisine and Welcome Bio Bazar. A place to visit a soon as possible to enjoy organic, local and ethical products!
The Biocoop store
Affiliated to the French network of organic stores in France, Biocoop (website in French), the Welcome Bio shop offers a great variety of seasonal organic certified products of local origin. The charter that Biocoop submits to its stores forces them to respect strict ethical values, and which pays to the farmer a fair price for his work. From fruits to vegetables, vine to meats, without forgetting the “bar à vrac” for condiments and dry fruits, the Welcome Bio shop is a true supermarket for organic and local food in the heart of the 11th arrondissement of Paris.
Open from Monday to Saturday, from 10a.m. to 8p.m.

Welcome Bio is also an Ecocert certified cafeteria. Here, the menu, the chefs and the products change every day. The recipes evolve according to the seasons.

The green concept-store
The concept-store called “Le Bazar” is aptly named because it is a true organic Ali Baba’s cave! We can find everything for every taste: plants, books, cosmetics, toys for kids, etc. From the kitchen to the garden, from the bathroom to the bedroom, until the playroom, the products are both original and eco-friendly. The concept-store wanted to emphasises conviviality and sharing thanks to beautiful products, a welcoming team and a heartening little café-corner for a shopping break.
The Bazar is open from Monday to Saturday, from 11a.m. to 8p.m.
The café is open from 10a.m. to 6p.m.
