Paris is home to the Largest Wholesale Food Market in the World!
The Short-E Show takes you behind the scenes to “Rungis Market”, the largest wholesale food market in the world located in the suburbs of Paris, France. The Rungis International Market is the principal market of Paris, located in the commune of Rungis, in the southern suburbs. It is the largest wholesale food market in the world.
Since its origins in the 10th century, the central market of Paris was located in the centre of the city, in a 10-hectare area named Les Halles. It became too small to accommodate all of the business demand, and, in 1969, the market was transferred to the suburbs. Rungis has been selected because of its easy access by rail and highway and its proximity to Orly International Airport.
The market is the property of the French State and administered by the Semmaris (Société d’Economie Mixte d’Aménagement et de gestion du marché d’intérêt national de Rungis). Wholesalers are plentiful and the competition is strong. The market starts at 1am and ends around 11am. Clients are professionals, distributors and restaurants. Veterinary, phytosanitary controls and property checkouts are omnipresent. The waste of the market is recycled and the energy generated by the incinerator is used to heat up the market and Orly Airport nearby.
