Description

Set out to discover the people and trades who give life to this exceptional place by starting your visit of Rungis at the market’s largest pavilion: the Fish Pavilion. You will discover a range of fresh products, the finest fish and shellfish that will be sold a little later in the day at your fishmonger’s or neighbourhood restaurant.

Then head towards the Meat Products section, where your guide will lead you through the various meat, poultry and tripe pavilions that are the true strongholds of French gastronomic tradition.

This unusual visit continues to the Dairy Produce Pavilion, where your guide will unveil the world’s biggest cheese platter! You will discover all the specialities of France and neighbouring countries: 400 varieties of cheese of all shapes and sizes and for all tastes are represented.

Your visit will then take you towards the fruit and vegetable sector. The colours, scents and even the sounds created by the warm ambience of the place will awaken all your senses. Rare and forgotten vegetables, exotically flavoured fruit… You will finish this immersion at the most bucolic pavilion of Rungis Market, the Flowers Hall.

To close this timeless visit, sit down for a breakfast of fresh products (charcuterie, cheese, bread, fruits...) from the Rungis Market.
