The Cité de la Gastronomie Paris-Rungis is expected by 2024 in Val-de-Marne. Created like a cultural hub, this new place aims to promoting sustainable food and responsible gastronomy around several creative and friendly areas.

The year 2024 will be a year to remember for Paris and Île de France. If the Summer Olympics will rock the French capital, other events will also be the talk of the city such as the Cité de la Gastronomie Paris-Rungis.

This new cultural, creative and convivial place is said to open in Val-de-Marne, not far from the famous Rungis International Market.

Set in a livery 7-hectare area, the Cité de la Gastronomie Paris-Rungis will likely make many French cuisine fans happy. According to the first details unveiled on the official website, the Cité de la Gastronomie Paris-Rungis will provide several sensory, teaching and even artistic experiences.

To do so, the Cité de la Gastronomie Paris-Rungis will unveil many corners:

  • a center of interpretation and experimentation related to temporary exhibitions; 
  • a fab lab designed to encourage creativity and public participation; 
  • a fully equipped auditorium; 
  • a modular platform enabling advanced training based on the Cité’s main themes; 
  • concept stores and specialist shops (bookshop, design store, etc.);
  • restaurants staffed by gastronomy students and trainees;
  • diverse dining;
  • a covered street for large banquets and live gastronomic shows; 
  • educational gardens linked to nearby urban farms. 

Of course, the Cité de la Gastronomie will also be the occasion to meet players from the field – teachers and professionals – and talk with them.

To make this place even friendlier, banquets, big meals and culinary workshops will be held.

The other good news is how easy it will be to get there thanks to the extension of metro line 14! To get to the Cité de la Gastronomie, allow 20 minutes from the Gare de Lyon station in Paris.

If everything goes according to plans, works should start in 2020 for an opening planned in 20204.
