The best street market for foodies in Brussels

3 m read

As I recently explained to you, food in Brussels is awesome. Therefore, I have a longer list of places I want to eat at than sights to see. So when I saw that a taco food truck was starting off its season at Flagey Place, I immediately had to put it in our calendar. Turns out Flagey Place is the up & coming foodie destination of Brussels, specially on Sundays. Let’s say it’s the best street market for foodies in Brussels.

There’s a little bit for everybody in this square given that it also doubles as a typical Sunday market. Actually, Flagey Place started originally as a food market but with the arrival of its iconic fries street vendor, it attracted several other food trucks with time. During the weekends, you will find a fruit & vegetable stands, a couple of fresh bread vendors, as well as fresh made pasta and roasted chicken. Everything looked and smelled great!

But if you are not in the mood of  grocery shopping, you can choose the cuisine, drink or dish of your choice.

What will you be able to find at Flagey Place?

TO DRINK

Coffee to go at PIM

Beers, wines and spritz in 3 different locations

Vive la Belgique for making super legal and normal to be drinking at 10 am ;)

TO EAT

Mexican food at El Taco Mobil

And of course, waffles!

Other places around Flagey Place to eat, drink or see…

Café BelgaSome call it a Belgian institution. A place you have to go if you actually want to say you’ve been in Brussels. The vibe is so unpretentious, chill but lively. Definitely check it our if you want to feel the essence of the city’s folklore.

What we ordered: a (strong) latte and craft beer

De Valera’s Irish Pub

I thought it was really funny that an image of Christ was placed at the bar. Very Irish, indeed. Have you ever seen religious figures at bars before?

Our drinks: Blonde beer for the Mr. and Elderflower lemonade

What we ordered: spicy chicken wings!

IXELLE’S POND

I knoooow what you are thinking, but Isabel that is too much food and deliciousness for one day! Fear not, you can take a stroll around the pond in order to ease your guiltiness after such indulgences. It is a food 20 minute walk (or less, if you’re not pregnant he!).

Funny enough, we saw a lot of people running together in what it looked like a training session. I thought to myself, “wow, I will be never able to run in this place with all this food around!”. Well the minute we sat down at the Irish Pub, all those running teams came for their dose of finger food as well. But hey, at least they worked out!

There are plenty of things to do and try at Flagey Place, which is why I considered it the best street market for foodies in Brussels. There is something for everybody and it is also very lively because it’s the best Sunday activity for foodies. During our time there we saw lots groups of friends, and even families having some fun at the bar. Extra points for Brussels!
