The market in Lille's Place Sébastopol takes place twice a week, gathering farmers from the region, who come to showcase and sell the finest produce, charcuterie, cheeses, and other locally-grown products.
- Address: Place Sébastopol, Lille
- Address: 7:00-14:00 (Wednesday, Saturday)
Rue de Bethune is Lille's main shopping thoroughfare, while Rue de la Grande Chausseé is the place to go for upscale luxury brands. There are plenty of individual boutiques selling deli (try the local Le Vieux Lille cheese) and drinks, with plenty of ethnic shops scattered around the Wazemmes area. Lille's modern shopping centre, Euralille, contains stores of internationally known brands, as well as all the facilities one would expect from a commercial complex of the kind.
