Came here on a Sunday before our train back to Amsterdam, 10minute walk from Brussels Midi. Lots to look at some good, some bad, some ugly. You can and should barter otherwise you'll be scammed. You can do the whole market in as quick as...More

Went to Marolles Flea Market on two separate Sundays. There is a huge variety of merchandise, from dubious to glamorous, but that is the nature of flea markets. Vendors selling every conceivable item, and bargaining, of course, is mandatory. For travelers, some of the larger...More

We spent a good couple of hours wandering around the array of random that is this flea market. It's quite hap-hazard - we were never quite sure which parts we had wandered down. A lot is on the floor or in boxes so you have...More

This provided insight into what's hiding in the attics of homes in the area. Nothing I'd consider adding to my own collection of junk, but interesting nonetheless. As you can see from the photos, most "vendors" don't even bother with tables - they just spread...More

We are lovers of local markets, whether they be carboot/flea/new items. This was more the former. More like a car booty. It was fun to rummage amongst the boxes of goodies, there was definitely bargains to be had. Enjoy soak up the atmosphere.

We heard about the flea markets in Brussels from one of our travel books, so thought we'd give it a try. 'Not exactly what we expected; many booths with masks and trinkets from The Congo, and also many middle eastern booths. We were hoping to...More

The attraction is located in the quarter of the Marolles. Parking is sparse but possible. The attraction is a big flea market. The offering is, in my opinion, over-priced due to the special reputation of the place.
