I believe street markets are the heart of a city. There are plenty in Brussels, but the most famous and busy is the one on Sunday morning around Gare du Midi.
You can find everything you want here, from clothes and flowers to household stuff. But Brussels locals mainly come here to get their weekly fruit and vegetable shopping, as it is one of the cheapest places in town.
There is plenty of choice and the prices will start dropping to almost nothing starting 13:30, when sellers want to get rid of the leftovers: a real chance to buy good quality products for the cheapest price.
And when your hands are full and you can’t take any more, you can enjoy some tasty Arabic food prepared in front of you.
