this is a daily event, starting about 6am and running to lunchtime, it is a kaleidoscope of junk and stuff, from piles of clothes, scarves, to books, yesterdays and tomorrows antiques with very colourful characters doing the bidding. Be prepared to haggle or die ... Go during the week - prices are lower than at weekend where there is the... More

This was a much bigger market than I thought it would be. It contains lots of clothes, beauty products and a very large section of fruits and veg. Most of the stall holder are immigrants and this is reflected in the products that are for sale - which for me was great as I could get some very juicy Maroccan... More

It's definitely a flea market, not an antiques fair! Fun to walk around & hear many languages. I found some lovely tiny spoons and a pristine piece of linen. Probably would not be as enjoyable on a bad-weather day.

This is a fantastic flea market. The best day to visit it is Sunday morning. The rest of the week is not as lively. The square is large and surrounded by red brick buildings including a church. On Sundays the bars and cafes around it liven up and there is good jazz music live, Belgian beer and simple food.

If you enjoy flea markets, this is one for you. People there were open and very diverse! Saw people from lots of different cultures and they're were all selling personal stuff which printed a nice atmosphere in the place.

There are over 100 stall laid out on the ground and tables. Haggling is suggested for the prices. Small restaurants are along the edge of the place. Things for sale change every day - so go back.

Very cool flea market in an area of Brussels worth walking through. I'm sure their were a ton of treasures hidden amongst all the garbage. I don't know enough about antiques to know what was authentic. There was lots of China and silverware.
