The endless sprawl of stalls and shops at Beijing’s Panjiayuan Market

The Panjiayuan (潘家园) Market is a super shopping market for all Chinese arts and crafts. It is made up of over three thousand individual stalls covering 48,500 square metres. There really is something for everyone here. Even Hillary Clinton has shopped at Panjiayuan.

There is a little overlap between stalls so you can compare and bargain but the range of goods is excellent. Stall owners come from twenty-four provinces around China to sell their wares.

Panjiayuan Market is at its best on weekends. The Antique Zone is open every day and the Arts and Crafts Warehouse Zone is open on Saturday and Sunday only.

Hours:

8:30 – 18:30 from Monday to Friday
4:30 – 18:30 Saturday and Sunday
