An earlier post mentioned discovering a new typology of markets.  Well, they are actually more common closer to the periphery of Paris.  Here are two more sightings from yesterday.

Belgrand Market | 20th arrondissemont

We discovered a new typology of markets in the last couple of days: a split market.  In order to get from one side to another, the visitors had to cross one or more streets [or church in the case of Jeanne d’Arc Market].  However, since the vendor offerings on each side were similar, the consumers don’t have to visit both sides of the market [unless they are enthusiastic market-goers like us].

Some consumers do cross from one side to the other and they tend to do it through one of the gaps in the market stalls.
