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.

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.
