Culture tip:

Paris was one of the first European cites to implement a system of formal, centralized and covered market places. Les Halles, a vast centralized wholesale market, was known to be in existence at least by the 13th century. The French system of organised, designated central retail markets was extensively studied by architects in London with a view to emulating the system and ultimately eradicating the informal supply of produce via street vendors.
