Dec 09, 13 AMEX in Paris, a Sneek Peek at Rungis Market – video

I’ve always wanted to visit Rungis Market and now I can, at least vicariously through this video from AmEx…

Amex Travel Insider Alex Zane is taking a sneak peek behind some of Europe’s best known destinations, uncovering the hidden gems that make each place that little bit more interesting.

According to research by American Express, amazing local cuisine and delicacies make trips away just that little bit more special. So while in Paris, the gastronomic capital of the world, Alex took a look behind the scenes of the world’s biggest and most respected food wholesaler, the Rungis Market, to see how it helps feed Paris. Larger in size than Monaco and sitting in a little known southern suburb of the city, the Rungis Market caters to the needs of many of the 77 Michelin starred restaurants that Paris is famed for, stocking over 400 varieties of cheese alone!

Alex talks to those who visit the market every day, either to trade their produce or to source the finest ingredients for their restaurants, to find out why the Rungis Market is such a mecca for foodies worldwide.
