PanJiaYuan 潘家园 market, BeiJing

A huge and lively semi-outdoor market with something for everyone.

If you only go to a market once in Beijing, take a trip to this colorful outdoor bazaar that sells all kinds of antiques, arts and crafts. It is located in south west Beijing, just east of LongTan Park. Although open everyday, it is most lively at weekends when far more stalls are open.


Nearly the whole range of desired objects can be found here : jade, Tibetan and other ethnic crafts, books, artworks, communist memorabilia, coins, jewelry, statues, beads, silk, porcelain, musical instruments, furniture ... Not all the antiques are genuine so if you need certainty it is probably best to shop elsewhere. If you're just looking for a curio, this is a great place to go. If you want a bargain, remember to bargain!


It was once called 'Ghost Market', which essentially meant black market. As word spread, people from far and wide would come here to sell what they could in times of need and by around 1990 the narrow hutong lanes were so crowded at the weekends that traders spread to a small nearby wood and sold their wares among the trees. This was when it gained the name 'Dirt Market'. So popular was the market that the authorities eventually legalised it, built a market structure and now rent out spaces within it.


Don't miss: the giant statues that are to be found on the right hand side (if standing at the entrance looking in).
