On Rue Gambetta, there is a market called Wazemmes (Marché de Wazemmes), that is opened every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, from morning until 1-2 PM. After the market closes the whole place becomes a parking place. Wazemmes is very big and you can find anything there from fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, specific food (I highly recommend roasted chicken) to clothes, jewelry, cosmetics and even electronics (well, I even found laptops :) ). Prices are in general smaller than in stores, and the quality is rather acceptable (even if I was tricked once when I bought some headsets, on the box the specifications said the cable is 3 m long, but it hardly had 1 meter :( )
