Nan Fang Curio Market

69 Jiuxiaochang Rd.
Shanghai, China

Part of the sprawling Old City God’s Temple district—also home to the Yuyuan Bazaar—Nan Fang Curio Market is a collection of stalls selling vintage clothing and costumes. New York—based Chinese designer Vivienne Tam visits the market at least twice a year and recommends stalls 32 and 33, where printed cheongsams are displayed alongside embroidered Qing dynasty skirts. In addition to clothing, the vendors also sell a variety of fabrics and antique accessories. The prices are merely guidelines, so bargaining is essential (and expected).

Insider Tip:

After browsing the market, walk to the nearby Yuyuan Bazaar for a lunch of inexpensive street foods, such as steamed pork buns and soup dumplings.
