I've posted reviews for this market already but want to add more. Mostly because I am totally mystified by comments here that it is unsafe, full of immigrants, dangerous, and a place no woman should go alone. Balderdash! I am 72 years old, travel by...More

The market was crowded. Everything is cheaper than in the supermarket. That goes the same about their quality. For sure it was not a typical French market as it was full mostly by immigrants

Half the hall was empty.Agree with all other disappointed reviewers. Stale Spring Rolls and the like. Depressed economically poor atmosphere. Not like a Paris Market. Unusual for France. A long walk to get to and a waste of time. Grubby poor immigrant area.

We went on a Sunday morning. There were many stalls and it was very busy. Nothing spectacular just worth a quick walk around.

Not worth a visit at all, there are nicer markets in Lille. The french authenticity is not seen here and the market is full of immigrants etc. We visited the market for approximately 5 minutes. Not worth a visit.

I would safely say that this market is not worth the time or effort myself and my boyfriend took to visit. The tourist office may boast of it as a landmark market. But we visited the market in the old town, which was delight. Full...More

The Lille office of Tourism called this 'the best and largest market of north France.' Well, guess they where boasting a bit. The market was okay, but not amazing or something. Lot of locals. Virtually no tourists. Unknown to us, the marker building was closed....More

Worthless tat, crazy hordes of people, nothing special or unique. Literally packs of batteries, random sweets and deodorant. We left after walking through as fast as we could out the other side.

On Sunday - the indoor market is really nice. Nice food, good cheese, fresh squeezed juice..... The outside is more like a flee market.
