Sauntering onwards from the more intimate St. Jacob’s, it’s a three-minute walk to the stretched-out Friday Market, occupied by seemingly endless rows of stalls every Friday and Saturday. The square was named for its traditional weekly market where everything is for sale, ranging from farmer’s produce to vintage lamps to cleaning products. It’s a staple for locals who like to inject a little liveliness into their weekend shopping. Besides two imposing 19th-century socialist palaces and older guild houses, terraces that fill up at the first hints of sunshine line the whole area.
Fridays from 7:30 am to 1 pm, and Saturdays from 11 am to 7:30 pm
