A WALK THROUGH BRUSSELS MARKET

On Saturday I went to the huge market "L'abattoir d'Anderlecht in Brussels.


At the entrance there are still the two bull statues standing from the ancient abattoir, which of course doesn't exist anymore and is used now as huge market place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.





People from all Brussels' municipalities come here, the prices are very cheap.



There are also lots of little food stands or restaurants where you can eat Belgian specialities.




The market is very colorful !







It's even nice to go there when it rains as there are still the old building standing.





As you can see there is a big choice of all kind of vegetables !

Those fruit and vegetable stalls look so colorful. The skies look blue too. I'm glad there are undercover counters as well.

But what did you buy? Oh, that's right, some fags for your hubby. No gendarme around, I guess.

What a cool place to shop. It reminds me of the old Valletta indoor market which, sadly, is currently not being used.

The market looks wonderful; I love buying fresh fruit and veg that way! It's a feast for your eyes first. I'm glad you explained the history of this huge place. I thought I knew that the word abbatoire had something to do with butchering meat. Better the new use for it in my opinion.
