Wednesday: Brussels Chatlelain market time

If you are attracted to the myriad smells, colours and sounds of city life, if you enjoy hearing all sorts of languages and accents, if you need fresh vegetables or any other kind of typical or exotic food or drink, the place to be in Brussels on Wednesdays is the weekly market at Place du Ch√Ętelain. I particularly enjoy observing what is going on at the wine stalls, the bars, the terraces and the stand of the Amnesty Intenational representatives and tasting the delicious plantain offered to me by the lady from Burkina Faso.
