Early start but interesting!
Apr 2019 • Friends
I have never had to get up for something so early before (2.30 to start tour at 4) but I am so glad I did it. I feel like getting a tour is something not everyone gets to do. It was really interesting getting a guided tour around the fish, meat and fruit and veg sections. The meat section was really hard to stomach though, just as a warning! Tour guide was very friendly and informative.

Had the privilege of visiting the largest market in the world. Fascinating to see how the worlds and local produce comes to a central point for seamless distribution. Clean and well run. Our Guide Francis from Valence was excellent, knowledgeable and passionate in showing us and explaining the products. Good experience and I recommend guests to make time and visit the Rungis Market. It opens at 2am.

What an experience!
Apr 2018
For those like myself who works in the seafood industry, it's a paradise where we can find products from all over the world on its best quality...but for those who are not working in the seafood industry, is also an amazing experience! So do not miss it if you're in Paris.

Feeding Paris
Apr 2018
We left Paris at 4 a.m. to visit the huge Paris market. It is a small town of its own. The only way you can visit the market is by guided tour.
The tour is well organised. Rungis supplies very knowledgeable guides. You are issued with a disposable coat, mobcap and visitor pass.
We visited the seafood, meat, cheese, vegetable and flower pavilions, travelling by bus between halls. It is a buzzing working market with lots of noise. Some pavilions are quite cold. The odd one out is the flower pavilion.
At the end of the tour, we had a huge breakfast and were transported back to Paris, a fairly long bus ride in peak hour traffic.

Overwhelming

In the very early morning the market opens, visit the different markets. Never seen so many fish, vegetables, fruits, flowers and flesh together in one area. The fish market with all the different kinds, fresh ready to go to restaurants and traders. Very impressive.

An absolute privileged!
Oct 2014 • Business
Was very fortunate to come here for a tour, and anyone who truly has an understanding of food should come here, although it did mean a ridiculously early start. This place reminds me how Billingsgate, Covent Garden, Smithfields and Spittafields must have been in thier heyday.

At 4:30am in the morning we go by bus from Paris to Rungis . On arrival everyone gets coat, hood and a visitor pass . First, it goes to the fish stalls , which are almost empty purchased at 5am , then the 4 - footed meat , but this is strictly traded separately from the pigs because " Halal " . Then it moves to the dairy and cheese products and for fruit and vegetables. The flowers are seen as a last stop.

Everything is huge and exciting. Unfortunately, nothing can try , even if one is starting to water in the mouth . Tip: in every hall you can get for 50ct coffee machine which is very helpful for a caffine injection at the time.

A pit stop at the Cafe Saint Hubert offers a good coffee as well as a pastry to stave off the hunger as well as something a bit stronger if you are up to it that time of the day. Overall highly recommended, though not quite inexpensive for a brillian fresh food a brilliant trip!

the biggest market I ever see
Oct 2013 • Business
I went there last year with my colleague. The market is very huge. They sell many fresh fish, seafood, meat, cheese, fruits, chocolate, groceries, wine, dry products also flowers. Not only from French but also other country. Not only by big companies but also local farmer. It organize and maintained very well. The quality of products are very good. It's amazing. The market starting early morning. Last time we arrived at 3am and they already busy. There's a cafe which served breakfast on the area. Overall the market is very clean except the toilet. It's terrible.
