One of the most authentic ways to experience any city is by exploring its markets, and Brussels is no exception. From antiques to clothing, food, and flowers, Brussels’ street markets have it all. Don’t miss these ones in the Belgian capital.

Grand Place

For plants and flowers, look no further than the Grand Place, or Grote Markt, which is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Beyond serving as a market, this square is at the epicenter of the entire city; it is ringed by guildhalls, the Town Hall, and the famed King’s House building which is home to the Museum of the City of Brussels. The Grand Place is even a UNESCO World Heritage site — what better location than this to buy a spontaneous floral bouquet?
