First stop, in a narrow street that runs from the quay to the market square, the Maison de la presse or newsagent's. It's been closed for quite a while but the sign is still there.
Next, on the quay, is the Alimentation générale, one of the groceries found in town. Actualy they sell more than just food (fishing gear, souvenirs, tobacco, spirits, and wine) as indicated on the façade.

Finally, here is one of these quintessential French shops: the bakery. In that particular case the Boulangerie de la Marine, where you can also buy cakes and ice creams.
