It Must be True - I Read It in The Times
Yesterday's 'Times' Travel section has a piece about the big Rungis food market that serves Paris. A picture caption claims that the market supplies '1.7 million tonnes of products every day'. Paris has a population of 11 million, more or less, and I am sure that people from the whole Ile de France travel to Rungis to choose from its superb selection of fresh produce. Nevertheless, that's over 100kg per person per day on a generous estimate. I do hope the Parisians don't start getting fat.
