On a Wednesday, the Marché Chatelain is my favorite place to be! From 2-6/7 you can buy all the fruits and veggies, and some things like bread and cheese- to your hearts desire! The prices range and I have seen way too expensive veggies, but also have gotten some great deals! Around 6 or 7- tons of people come out... More

I just had an hour free time and decided to visit the weekly market. It was small and cosy, but offered a good choice of market stalls where you could buy Mediterranean delicacies (olives, fresh pastas, sausages, bread etc.) and fruit and vegetables. You could also buy a meal and enjoy your dish at one of those tables. The delicacies... More

The views by others are true; it is a very nice place/market to pass time on a Wednesday, however the setting is occasionally spoilt as it was yesterday by the police who are there to keep pickpockets and the like under control. Instead of doing their job, they often pick on the traders by insisting that they not cross lines... More

Going to a city midweek often rules out markets-except for fruit and veg ones. The wednesdat market in Place de Chatelain is predominantly food and drink but its a really good experience. Its that elusive experience we are usually all after when away on holiday- a local experience. Its just lots and lots of people browsing, tadting, shopping and eating-... More

Cosy place to have lunch or afternoon tea or just to chat with friends. I did lost first time when I was driving there, but overall it's pretty easy to get to. For me it is a special place because the wedding boutique where I bought my dress is situated there. So I will always remember it.

Typical Brussels architecture, masses of restaurants, great street market on Wednesdays. The square itself is not square but nicely irregular with lots of trees. Oh, and a nearby hotel is one of the few in Brussels with good facilities for wheelchairs.

When I manage to get home early enough in the summer on a Wednesday, one of my favourite activities is to go the Chatelain market and meet with friends and soak up the atmosphere. It usually becomes a big street party with people spilling out on the street not only at the market, but also in the neighbouring bars (I... More

An area where young inhabitants of Brussels like to hang out on weekends or summer days. The Place du Chatelain itself hosts only few bars and restaurants, but the surrounding streets have more to offer. Just stroll around and discover beautiful houses, small bars and restaurants, and all sorts of shops and boutiques.

The square itself has it charms - so does the location and the streetside pubs in the even ing heaving with thirsty young things. Above al the Wednesday afternoon market should not be missed.
