Panjiayuan Market
On a weekend morning, hop on metro line 10 to Panjiayuan station and take exit B. Just down the road is sprawling Panjiayuan market, where hundreds of vendors sell their wares. It's essential to bring to Panjiayuan cash, patience, and a willingness to bargain a reasonable amount. While there aren’t true authentic antiques here, you will find loads of curios from the 1950s onward, including a superb selection of colorful propaganda posters at a fraction of what they sell for in central Beijing shops. Lacquerware and teapots and cups, jewelry, chopsticks, and textiles. Larger items, like traditional carved-wood furniture and substantial framed paintings, can easily be stowed in one of the taxis that wait patiently near the entrance for happy shoppers.
