    2 more images

    wonderful biscuits cookies, madeleines, chocolates and local Breton especialties to delight the entire family underneath the ruins of the old castle facing pl St Sauveur in Saint Goustan, Auray

    a family favorite and hopefully yours when in town. This is great quality from a maître chocolatier de France.
    Born in Brittany, the Maison Georges Larnicol stay loyal to its origins, the vast majority of its production is done in Melgven in the south Finistère region. George Larnicol follow the steps of his father with its first store at Quimper in the 80's

    Follow with great success with the creation of the « Boule de Neige », the sweet story continues all over Brittany first, then the West of France, and even gaining the heart of Paris at Boulevard Saint Germain in Dec 2010. And eventually many others such as rue de rivoli in Paris too.

    A tradition that is worth visiting in its origins,right here.

    What to buy: chocolates, madeleines, and Kouignettes Caramel au beurre salé are delicious, little biscuits of salted butter with different flavors inside, glorious

    What to pay: very good prices for quality products better than Paris with store there too

    Carrefour Market: groceries at Carrefour

    by gwened Written Jan 13, 2013
    carrefour Market

    Going around town walking and shopping at different stores is a nice treat I do it in all cities I have lived. Auray is no exception.
    The Carrefour market is a smaller version of the Carrefour hypermarket you find in outer city limits like the one in Vannes, here we have the market way, smaller more intimate and all groceries;

    The concept is to have the real old supermarket and there are already 3,000 stores in 19 countries,making day-to-day shopping easier by offering a wide range of food products adapted to local needs at very competitive prices.

    IT reminds me of the old grocery stores my mother used to owned. Very town folksy store. The store here is at the corner of ave Charles de GAulle and rue Aristide Briand.

    What to buy: groceries ,food items all for the house ,apartment, gite, hotel etc
    they have a ready to eat section of sandwiches and cook to order meals of the day.

    What to pay: prices are competitive but a bit up as compare to other chains unless you buy the discount brand 1 of bare necessaries.

    inside Intermarche just by hams and hotdogs stand

    This is another chain of supermarkets in France, all part of a group mousquetiers.The intermarché are call for lower prices but really they are all very similar. The one in Auray is very nice, wide spacious, clean, and good service. Really you find all you need here even international food .

    Its about 10 kms from centre Auray on the way to Locmariaquer and Baden just past the town of Crac'h on the D28 road off the N165. My flash was not working so just took one photo inside

    What to buy: food groceries and some sundry items like lightbulbs. Mainly we come here for groceries. Its just a way to go around and try them all and we love to ride a car out.

    What to pay: it competes well with the other chain and has a look of low prices with brand name and their own but really I find it the same.
