Roving markets in Paris usually stand on their own [on medians, plazas or under metro tracks], but in case of the ones situated on the sidewalk, we’re noticing interaction with facing storefronts. The extent varies, but at Point du Jour Market in the 16th arrondissemont, the market-side and the storefront sides of the market begin to merge into one.
Formal stall structures line only one side of the sidewalk while rogue vendors fill in the gaps in between stores on the other side.
Soon, we begin to read the informal market umbrellas as an extension of store awnings.
Finally, add the market goers and the two sides are woven together as one large market.
