After a very difficult week here in Brussels, we are pleased to announce the reopening of our public markets this weekend. The market on Saturday 28/11 and Sunday 29/11 will take place but under strict conditions: the market will only be accessible - both for visitors and for cars - by the access of Parking Delacroix located in the Jules Ruhl Street.
We will only open two exits: one to the direction of the Chaussée de Mons (in front of metrostation Clémenceau) and one into the direction of the main entrance at the Rue Ropsy Chaudron (between the two bulls). For those who stationned their car on Parking Delacroix, there is of course an exit inside the parking.
Please follow our advise: to visit the market, use the metrostation Delacroix and when leaving the market, go to metrostation Clemenceau. Each visitor will be physically controlled at the entrance of the market.
Important message for the ambulatory merchants : only merchants with a monthly subscription for a stall on our market will be authorized to enter this week-end. We want to make this communication very clear : if you have no subscription, please do not try to show up this weekend. Your access to our site will be blocked !
Inspite the reduced level for terror attack, the Municipality of Anderlecht did not took a decision yet regarding the organization of public markets. We are forced to cancel the market of Friday 27th of November and we will only open our foodhall FOODMET where you can buy meat, fruit, fish, vegetables, cheese, bread and olives.
The Regional Council of Security will have a meeting Friday morning. We wait this meeting for more information regarding the markets on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 November.
But the FOODMET will be opened tomorrow from 7 a.m. till 2 p.m. We'll take extra safety measures to control all entrances and exits.

After the terror threat of the last days in Brussels, it is until Today not decided yet if our markets will be opened again this weekend. We will probably open the foodhall FOODMET, with supplementary control at the entrance. May we kindly ask our ambulatory merchants to be prudent while purchasing perishable food. Buy small quantities and follow this website daily to be up-to-date ! We hope to formulate a definitive decision by Wednesday morning !
Last Sunday, the entire capital of Belgium was paralyzed with fear. All markets were canceled by the risk of terror threat. Unfortunately, but it was also unavoidable for our outdoor market. But after long reflection, we decided to open our FOODMET, the new Food Hall. The 45 stores in this foodhall could be easily opened, but for the ambulatory merchants from the outdoor market (there around 400), this wasn't possible. Our staff and the securities from FACT GROUP did a great job. They offered around 5.000 people living in Brussels the possibility to purchase food for the following days. Read more...
