Last year I re-discovered the big market which takes place each Sunday in Brussels at the South Station. The Midi market is reputed to be the biggest in Europe behind Ventimiglia on the Italian Riviera ! On average 450 stand holders (mostly Morrocans) sell here their wares of all varieties and prices. You can find almost everything, spices from all countries, meat, vegetables, fruits, clothes, fabrics, home suppliances, electric stuff, bags, suitcases, underwear, shoes, etc. etc.
So when the weather is nice I like to walk through the multi cultural stands, sometimes I buy some fruits or other things, I like to sit down at the terrace of a Bistro and watch people doing their shopping.
I took these two pictures on the Midi Market in Brussels,
and this one on our local market in Waterloo which of course has just the size of a normal weekly market. Mr. Gattino goes there every Sunday to buy fresh Italian food coming directly from Italy. He has his "private" supplier there a guy named Carmelo who sales almost everything and also serves as a meeting point to all Italians living around. They drink their espresso there and chat far better then the market women.
