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

Most crowded in Sunday morning, the market will be a good experience. Here you can buy almost everything, but nothing really special. If you are a fan of bio-products, you can find here also many local farmers who sell their own products.

For those who are interested in things like exotic foods and clothes it worth a visit. I went to see some books and objects, but I did't find too many options. I think it's a good option for a Sunday morning.

Spent easter weekend in Lille and heard great stories...was disappointing. Lots of junk and poor quality. Beware pick pockets. The food market was great. Buy roti (skewer chicken) poule just outside the food market. Really tasty chicken - don't forget to ask gravy. Yum.

Nothing of interest to tourists. A local market for local people. Much smaller scale but recommend a trip down Rue Monnaie for a classier experience and lovely local bars, cafes and restaurants - it's also on Sundays

Visited Wazemmes Market on a hot Sunday. I enjoyed this but I can see the faint-hearted may not. It was shoulder to shoulder packed with a huge range of people and a vast range of different stalls: fruit, vegetables, herbs flowers, clothes, bedding. The smells from the fruit stalls, flowers and herbs were delightful, from the people less so; it... More
