A night at Rungis, France's fresh produce market
Issued on: Modified:
Rungis, located south of Paris, is the largest fresh produce market in the world, serving 18 million French consumers every day. Some 10,000 tons of food pass through it each night and 40,000 people work across the site. It's a city within a city, with separate neighbourhoods dedicated to each type of food - from fish to meat. FRANCE 24 takes you behind the scenes to meet some of the wholesalers.
