I have been going to this market for the past four years and I always find something different. Jue de balle is one of the best open markets that takes place every day from 0600 to about 1400. This market has some history going back serval hundred years and if you know what your looking for from the old world... More

Visiting the flea market is a fun way to spend the morning, ambling through stalls of all sorts of things that you would never think could demand a whole stall. We had fun trying on glasses, hats, playing with dolls, looking at old lost photos and people watching. A hidden gem is a store front with a man grilling fresh... More

Visited on a sunny Sunday while drinking cherry beer and it was lovely. There was much to rummage through - trash and treasure alike, but we mostly just walked through the market. We made some nice and geeky finds at the corner of the flea market which sold old Tintin, Smurfs etc. memorabilia. Beware of lots of broken glass on... More

We had an awesome time at the flea market. There are both great and not so great stuff with a lot of junk thrown in. I bought a few great little thing after haggling a lot. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning!

Definitely a great site for tourists or those living in Brussels, and absolutely worth a few trips. I just moved fairly close to Jeu de Balle, and every time I pass through the market I find something new and interesting (for real cheap). Whether you are looking for something in particular or just want to browse, there are so many... More

Our second time here but got lost as we walked there from the center of town. Not really that far if you pay attention. Lots of a little bit of everything. The last time a spotted a ceramic light fixture I had just found at home in California at a yard sale. Probably Italian but really a surprise to see... More

The weather in Bruxelles isn't exactly an asset and how enjoyable this market is heavily relies on a bit of sun. If the weather is nice, spend some time browsing through all the objects for sale, have a drink at one of the cafés and then climb up the road to pick a little restaurant for lunch: you won't be...

Despite getting constantly cat-called by sellers I have never failed to come away with a bargain. There's a whole cross-section of curiosities to be looked at, making the market perfect for a stroll. The surrounding neighbourhood is perfect for a walk around too!
