Wednesday afternoon and early evening are market time at Place du Chatelain. The most fantastic cheese, fresh meat, cooked meat, baked goods, fresh vegetables and fruit, and fresh fish. And at this time of year mulled wine ..... and more. I love it.

I do not come here often but when I do, I choose the Wednesday afternoon or evening. This is when the place converts into a joyful fresh food market. Many stands have a little terrace where you can eat and drink among friends. The atmosphere is quite international and posh as this is the uptown part of Brussels. Around the... More

Every Wednesday afternoon/evening there is a small market with veritables, fruits, Italian/French gourmet food, pastries, and small delicious snack-places. There are bigger markets like the one at the South-Station, or more famous at Flagey, or more fancy at Sablon, but this is my favorite one, it combines a bit everything and I like the area a lot! -Go there!!

On a Wednesday, the Marché Chatelain is my favorite place to be! From 2-6/7 you can buy all the fruits and veggies, and some things like bread and cheese- to your hearts desire! The prices range and I have seen way too expensive veggies, but also have gotten some great deals! Around 6 or 7- tons of people come out... More

You could also buy a meal and enjoy your dish at one of those tables. The delicacies... More

The views by others are true; it is a very nice place/market to pass time on a Wednesday, however the setting is occasionally spoilt as it was yesterday by the police who are there to keep pickpockets and the like under control. Instead of doing their job, they often pick on the traders by insisting that they not cross lines... More

Going to a city midweek often rules out markets-except for fruit and veg ones. The wednesdat market in Place de Chatelain is predominantly food and drink but its a really good experience. Its that elusive experience we are usually all after when away on holiday- a local experience. Its just lots and lots of people browsing, tadting, shopping and eating-... More
