La Louve: The First Cooperative Food Shop in Paris

Inspired by the Park Slop Food Coop and his investigations, Tom Boothe and his friend Brian Horihan opened a cooperative food shop where you can buy local products. Located at 116 Rue des Poissonniers in the 18th district of Paris, you can shop in a marketing free environment. These products are selected according to 6 criterias: environmental impact, fair trade, taste, price, proximity and needs of the neighbourhood.

Here shopping means becoming a member of the cooperative and volunteering at least 3 hours every 4 weeks. Every member can propose products to be sold and participate in decision-making.

Become a member of La Louve.
