Rungis au Grand Palais

Last night was the inauguration of RUNGIS AU GRANDP ALAIS! Its on all weekend. Who hasn't wanted to go to the big wholesale market (at 3-4 am in the morning)?
This is the first time RUNGIS has come to Paris. Hooray🎉If you're here definitely GO!
You'll get a free shopping bag at Pink Lady Apples but a granny cart would be useful. Loads of tastes and loads of fun. Demos, ateliers etc. yesterday I put the November PARISMAP in the mail📮 Hooray🎉
The line 1 decided to close down last night so I walked in the rain from the Louvre to Grand Palais. My feet were soaked but it was worth it. Line 1 was up and working by the time I left near 11 pm. Hooray🎉
Its now after 6 am and I'm waiting for the train to Clermont-Ferrand and my 4th RENDEZ-VOUSDUCARNETSDEVOYAGE! Hooray🎉
Bonne Week-End PBers👍🏻 
Enjoy reading this with your morning coffee☕️ and keep Bear in Paris with a letter subscription from my Etsy shopBear 🐻 is staying home house sitting ❤️☕️🥐


  1. What fun, Carol! Only the French could arrange a fruit salad so artfully. Thanks for bringing Rungis in Paris to us.

  2. The art of food display is something else. I WILL make an effort this Thanksgiving. Thanks, Carol.

  3. The fair looked great! And a travel sketchbook show. Oh Carol, your life!!! But do stay hunkered down a bit and chase that chill and fatigue away

    1. I hunkered with a 2 hr nap zzzzzzzzz

    Did you get lots of samples?
    I want that beautiful Pineapple thing❤️

  5. Always thought it would be fun to visit Rungis - but not at 4 am so this would be perfect. Lucky you! I'll bet the samples were spectacular.

    1. They certainly were. I could not tear myself away!
      So many oysters!!

  6. Beautiful.
