La Jeune Rue


Paris is full of farm fresh produce markets, butchers and fromageries, but there are only a few places where you get the feeling of quality combined with community infused in local farmer’s markets of French villages outside of the capital. Investor Cédric Naudon took it upon himself to create such an environment in Paris, where the best of design and gastronomy combine for a quintessential Parisian experience: quality and aestheticism in all things. Naudon purchased and redesigned, in collaboration with renowned creatives including chefs, artists and industrial designers, a collection of 20+  store fronts in Paris’ 3rd arrondissement that will be home to a group of artisanal  entertainment, design shops, and food stores.

Located on rue Vertbois, the zonehas been dubbed La Jeune Rue. Opening in two rounds, the first this spring and the second later this fall, the shops are clustered together on the main street and will span down the cross street, rue Volta, and up rue Notre Dame de Nazareth.


Wishing to expand from his first restaurant endeavor, Le Sergent Recruteur, on the Île Saint-Louis, the project of La Jeune Rue snowballed from the one envisioned restaurant into a few, then a collection, and now a small movement. The buzz began at the beginning of the year with an exploratory press event in January and will certainly continue as visitors discover and return to see the new openings throughout the year.

Here is a list of locations and collaborators so far:
