Let’s make things quite clear, there is nothing illegal in this business, even if the place is filled with authentic vintage nuggets.
Stack of great second hand clothing, rows of vintage dresses (49€), indigo blue work outfits (65€), old 501 Levi’s jeans (25€), patinated satchels (65€), but also decorations and small crafts objects that Amah Ayivi, the MC of Comptoir Général, collects and picks up on markets throughout Africa.
In the footsteps of its older brother on Canal Saint-Martin, Marché Noir draws a great deal from black culture. Just check out the merchandise, cleverly presented in a majestic neo-colonial decor spanning 600 m2, a skip and a hop from Carreau du Temple. A real curiosity.
As bonus, the place hosts exhibitions, along with the style and advice bureau of Maître Ayivi, casting director during a decade. In short, if you dream of “dressing differently”, this is the place to go.
