“The Grasshopper having sung all the summer long, found herself lacking food when the North Wind began its song. Not a single little piece of fly or grub did she have to eat. So she went to the Ant’s home, her neighbour, where they have great deals for your hot meals!” 

Supermarket rejects (items with approaching expiry dates, labelling defects or unsold stock) are sold at very low prices by our friend La Fourmi (to the great delight of our bank balances).

From groceries and drinks, to bathroom and beauty products, there are different products to choose from every time you visit this solidarity outlet, depending on what arrives (Tip: you can also follow the shop on social networks).

The grasshoppers will surely be dancing this winter!


Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
