This Small Grocery Shop in France is Quirky and Colorful

This small grocery shop at Toulouse University in France in a charming and quirky market space designed by Matali Crasset. The Mini M Grocery was introduced as a way to make more types of food accessible on campus, including eat-in and take-out varieties.

Set among a wash of colorless concrete buildings, the Mini M shop is vibrant, positive and fun. On the inside, the shop is set up like a casual market with cartoonish fixtures that bring the experience of vising outdoor food vendors inside. As well as the appeal of being able to grab a quick bite, the whimsy of the shop alone is probably a refreshing break from being stuck in serious classrooms all day.
