MY WORLD - Brussels Midi Market

more participants here

Many of you know that I love to go to the Brussels "Midi Market" on Sunday mornings when the weather is nice. (I wrote more about this market 2 years ago here

The market is around the South Railway Station of Brussels, which is also the main Station for all international trains.

There is a very special atmosphere on this market, it's colorful and mixed with people from everywhere. The majority of imigrants in Belgium are Moroccans so you hear their music and also their language. But you also hear speaking English, German, Italian, Spanish and the Eastern country languages.

and you find everything your heart wants, for very cheap

clothes, shoes, spices, fruits etc

I love these kaftans ! I have several for winter and summer, they are so comfy to wear when you are at home instead of a boring bathrobe. There are very beautiful once from 5 to 20 €.

Fresh baked bread is also present of course

Embroidered handbags from Morocco, very chic for an evening and only 5 € !

and for those who like to sew, there are plenty of fabrics of all colors and materials.

Oh, I love markets like these! Just don't get to go as often as I would like and certainly not to any as fun as yours! Great post for the day, Gattina! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!
