Antique Market Sunday: Sint-Jansvliet
Exotic Market: Oudevaarplaats, Theaterplein and surrounding
BIO Market: Veemarkt
Seasonal/ Special Events:
And then the celebrations continue with the Christmas Market. An absolutely magical event. There are wooden huts in the middle of the square selling all sorts of traditional specialities. You can sip mulled wine under the Christmas tree or try one of Antwerp's famous jenevers while warming up next to a cozy open fire.
15 August: Rubens Market:
This market on the 'Grote Markt' in honour to Antwerps' most famous resident. Traders dress in period costume to peddle their wares, turning the Grote Markt into a replica of one of the master's works.
