Ghent is a city that embraces innovation. Just like Barcelona, Copenhagen and Rotterdam, the proud and rebellious city of Ghent also owns a food market. A venue that once seemed to be a neglected ruine has become one of the hot places of Ghent.
The Holy Food Market invites you to enjoy a unique experience: food tasting in a 16th-century chapel that has been transformed into an indoor market with various food stands. In the evening the combination of the old religious decoration with the modern additions just looks amazing.
My suggestion: first, take a sip from your Holy Water Cuberdon. That’s a gin based on our famous ‘cuberdons’, the purple candy from Ghent. Second, enjoy some Lebanese street food from Yala Yala. Third, end with a sinful pleasure from the Magnum Pleasure Store. There you can compile your own favourite Magnum ice cream with the best toppings in the world: fruity, crunchy or chocolate. Hallelujah!
