Budget food shopping

My partner and I are moving to Paris in a few months (I can't wait!) The only downside is that we'll be on graduate student salaries paid in USD (meaning that we really won't have much money). I'm looking for markets, shops; etc where I can get a good deal on food items. I know the Barbes market, and in the past I've shopped around La Goutte d'Or, but I don't know any of the specific stores there (I've just walked in whenever I saw a place selling grains and beans by bulk, for example). I'm looking both for places where I can stock up on basics, like grains and beans, as well as other possibly cheaper markets for fruits and veggies. We'll be living near la place des vosges, but i'm willing to travel. We don't eat much meat - but if you have suggestions for a reasonable boucherie or charchuterie, bring it on! Thanks!
