 Shopping in Lille

From its rich merchant past, Lille has retained a real commercial tradition. Here, shopping is a reflection of the northern towns: lively and friendly.

Each district has its own special features, and the variety of shops is enough to satisfy every budget and every desire.


With its narrow, cobblestone streets lined with lovely Flemish houses, Old Lille is the ideal place to find the great names in luxury goods, fashion and design. There are plenty of antiques shops and art galleries and a pleasant market on the Place du Concert every Sunday morning.
Until September 3, Rue de Gand and Rue de la Monnaie (from rue Comtesse to place du Concert) are pedestrian from 7 pm to midnight.


In the centre and pedestrian streets, you’ll find the department stores and international chain stores. On the Grand Place, the Furet du Nord is one of the biggest bookshops in Europe!


In the train station district, the Euralille shopping centre, designed by Jean Nouvel, houses a hundred shops, restaurants and a hypermarket beneath its futuristic lines.


The multi-ethnic Wazemmes area is a place to come bargain hunting in the bazaars and discount shops in the Rue Gambetta district. On the Place de la Nouvelle Aventure, you’ll find flavours from all over the world at the large, bustling Sunday morning market.


In the Lille Sud district, Rue du Faubourg des Postes has become the Maison de Modes (fashion district). It was inaugurated in January 2007 in the presence of its promoter Agnès b. At the heart of a district in the midst of a revival, young designers create and sell their own collections from 12 workshop-shops.

 The main outdoor markets

Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday: 7 am - 2 pm.
With food, flowers, fabrics and exotic products, it's one of the largest markets in France, and perhaps one of the liveliest (up to 50,000 visitors some Sundays). Colourful, with a "Soho" atmosphere, you'll often hear an accordion being played. On Sunday, a flea market is set up around Saint-Pierre Saint-Paul church.
Covered market in the "halles" (market hall), every day except Monday.
