    Well finally took a photo of one of my favorite bakeries here and in France; these are a chain of bakeries since 1850 adhering to a simple motto, fresh from the fields of wheat to your table.

    What to pay: 1 euro for the Baguette 56, the rest is standard 90 centimes, prices are nice.

    Carrefour Market: groceries at Carrefour

    by gwened Written Jan 13, 2013

    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.

    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 .

    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.
