Flea Markets and More in Brussels
Belgium has been a center of the art world for centuries, and the flea markets abound with some amazing finds. Bring a flashlight to look thru dusty stacks of canvases, and a magnifying glass for checking out those ancient sterling silver or gold hallmarks. Generally be prepared to have fun, but you might get dusty and thirsty.
The antiques markets in the area of Place du Grand Sablon are the best, and offer a myriad of objects d’art for visitors on the maze of streets emanating from the square, and in the square itself. Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm, Sundays 9 am to 1 pm. Famous for antiques from the 1900’s thru the ‘30s and furniture especially.
Daily there is a Flea Market (the Marche aux Puces ) at the Place du Jeu de Balle, near the Palais de Justice. It opens at 7 am and closes around 2 pm, an early-bird type of thing.
Also for fun is the Boulevard de la Woluwe open only on the First Sunday of every month from 8 am until 1 pm. Then there is the Westland Shopping Center on Sundays from 8 am until 1 pm; and the Auderghem at Place Pinoy, also only on Sundays, but from 7am until 1 pm.
Just imagine what you can find here in Brussels at the Flea Market!
