  Vismarkt / Fishmarket
by sim1

Favorite thing:
When you walk passed the Aa-church you come to the Vismarkt = Fishmarket. This is a big market square, often busy with life because there is some sorts of market going on. But not today, hahaha, as Thursdays seems to be "market-free" :-)) So instead a nice empty square. Not bad either, because that gives me a chance to look a bit better at the building surrounding this square. If you want to visit the market, Fridays is your best chance. Every Friday there is a big weekly market (between 08:00 - 17:00) here on the Fishmarket and also on the adjacent "Grote Markt". Please don't think that you can only buy fish here! There is much more, like flowers, herbs, cheese, fabrics... and fish of course ;-)

The big building in the picture is the "Korenbeurs". I'll tell you a bit more about this building in the next tip.
