Alésia is a residential area where you’ll come across families and the elderly. So, to cater to this cross-section of Parisian residents, there are the usual chain stores and supermarkets. If you head towards Rue Daguerre, however, you’ll get a more dynamic vibe, as the street is flanked by butchers, greengrocers, fishmongers, and other market-type vendors.
