Vegan w/ Celiac Seeking Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

Can anyone recommend good grocery stores and/or outdoor markets where I can get much needed fruits and vegetables during my upcoming long weekend stay in Paris in early September? We will be staying near the Opera House but will go anywhere necessary in the city to find supplies. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I wish I could tell it's going to be easy -- but it just ain't.

coeliac and omnivorous is pretty easy in France although you are unlikely to see special menus or special GF alternatives in most restaurants.

. Coeliac and lacto-veggie is do-able

coeliac and vegan will be harder - i would head for specialist veggie and vegan restaurants rather than trtying to pick my way through most typical restaurant menus

the word for vegan is

végétalien/-ienne

i always say i am allergic to wheat etc rather than explain coeliac disease '' je suis allergique au blé''

Are staying near Opera Garnier or Opera Bastille? That will help with local recommendations.

As the first two posters commented gluten free and vegan restaurant options are quite limited.

However from your post I thought you were looking for fruit and vegetable from a market or store and I consider that there are excellent sources of fruit and vegetables all over Paris. You certainly won't have any difficulty at all in obtaining beautiful fresh tasty produce.

Agree with #3. If you are just looking for places to buy fresh fruits and vegetables that would be the equivalent of trying to find a skyscraper in Manhattan. You don't just have to look for grocery stores or seek out street markets as fruit and vegetable stores can be found all over Paris quite easily.

To aid you further here is a link that will show you the locations of Paris street markets:
