Why locals love it

It is what we call a brocante, a place where people sell their old stuff and you can actually negotiate prices there, so be smart! It might be even the best way to find an original yet unique souvenir for your friends back in your country!

Why you should visit it

The atmosphere generated by people walking through the stands and by people selling their stuff is unique and is quite fun! So if you're looking for something fancy, it's definitely worth going to have a look there!

Special tip

Early birds are more than welcome (as it starts at 6AM).

all junk, but alotta fun. old cameras, video equip, leather jackets, etc,...were interesting to me... for the experience, you must buy something, but you must negotiate the price. there was some drama there where police had to come, but for the most part just folks browsing. folks bring big bags and carts expecting to buy stuff. i spent 2h just photographing stuff. then walkes up the hill to see how the other half lives (chic ixelles)

Only one of the coolest mini junk and antique markets ever. Go to the super cool Bar La Chaff for a giant coffee and rummage through the market. The church at the base of it is where the locals go once a year to get their animals baptised. The whole neighbourhood is great fun, good food and if you love old stuff make sure to bring a van.

I like this place. Cause I am crazy about brocantes and their atmosphere. This one is compact and has a lot of stuff either to decorate your house or just to trifle. Thank you for your tips! Really good ones and places well chosen.
