This place is mostly a junk market, but if you want to experience an old fashioned market this is a place for you. There is a lot of old stuff, but there are also some decent finds if you look hard enough! You need to be ready to bargain. I really couldn't be bothered to rummaging through everything, so we...

Friendly dealers, lots of older items. Many of the same items were spotted in the antique shops along Rue Braes. Loads of fun and one of the few things open early in the morning!

My husband is a huge Tintin fan so we stopped in here for a look around and to relive a bit of the action from "The Secret of the Unicorn"! It was just great. Blankets on the floor covered in an array of junk/treasure depending on your point of view. No denying the atmosphere of the place. The surrounding streets... More

I always go to the market and this time it was better than ever..... a huge array of sellers on Saturday at lunchtime (the market opens early in the morning). So much to look at, and the vendors seem happy to let one haggle on price!

It is a flee market and worth a visit.But, But, for TinTin fans, It is something! Really something. At the first pages of "The Secret of the Unicorn" We saw TinTin here (Herge painted it) and he want to buy a ship , then all adventure happened! In Louvian-la-neuve, Hergé museum, you find a photo of Hergé at this market,... More

Old clothes, old silver, junk and treasures. It's all here. Make it part of a De Marollen outing and enjoy a local brasserie for lunch

Every time I visit it I buy something vintage for home. This is the place where you find authentic antique things. It shows that most of the items come from rich homes.

Really interesting place and one of the best flea markets I have been to in Europe. Mostly old random pieces, some junk and even very rare antiques are sold. From books, cutlery, chinaware, statues, decoration and so on you will find a lot of good looking & vintage things. Some prices are over the top but please consider that its... More
