Wazemmes is a cool neighbourhood in Lille, packed with quirky pubs, home to the annual Wazemmes Accordion Festival, and most famously location of the Market. We went on a Sunday morning and there was a really nice atmosphere, wide selection of anything you may like to buy - bright scarves, assorted jewelry, and then fresh foods - meats and cheeses...

We walked easily to Wazzemes Market from our hotel in the centre of Lille. It's not a large as other French city markets but it's still a good size with lots of food/flower and produce stalls and there is an undercover part as well. The undercover part is small compared to others we've seen but it's not bad and has... More

This market is huge! In the indoor market one finds the more high-end delicacies, and outside you will find everything else. The food sold outside and the people walking over the market reflect the international connections of France quite nicely. You can have a coffee at one of the many terraces around the market and watch the locals looking for... More

I found this market very initimdating in sections - to the point of having to tuck away my long dark blonde hair after being given LOTS of filthy looks. When people describe this as a market for locals, I did not expect this to include radical types preaching on every corner and intimidating people who they did not like the... More

I get why this is a great destination for a local - the food looked excellent. However, the indoor market (where most of the food is) is fine but not particularly attractive (I've seen far better elsewhere in France). But the outside market was just awful - (cheap clothing, tacky art etc)... It had zero charm. Nothing shabby chic about... More

Huge market which was absolutely packed with stalls and locals! A large variety of stalls including fresh fruit and veg, bread, cheeses, meat, olives, clothes and shoes! Seeing as the main centre of town was almost deserted, visiting the market explained where all the locals were! A great way to kill a couple of hours on a Sunday, and was... More

Sunday morning it was all happening. The flea market, alongside food and produce. It was ace. Spent a few hours collecting up supplies to take back to the UK. Cheese, meats, bread, and we even got a bunch of fresh fruit and veg it was so good. Super super value. A bag of olives 60 euro cents. Picked up a... More

We kind of stumbled across these markets and there was plenty to see. A great little bakery at the entrance of the markets we came into (almond croissant was to die for). Inside there was a mixture of clothes, fresh food & cooked food stalls. We didn't buy anything but it was nice to see a different part of town... More

In south Louisiana, we have boudin but it's basically one type of boudin. Cajun. It all looks and tastes pretty much the same. This market has such a variety of foods, from produce, to meat, to seafood, bakery items, and cheeses. You'll want to buy more than you can eat. The boudin case must have had two dozen variations: white,... More
