  covered market...
by belgianchocolate

'Criee' is the name of this place.
Criee is french for shout. Until the fire in 1983
his spot was used to sell meat by auction..

Now it is a covered market with in the middle
a little supermarket and on the sides a
fishmonger , a poultry stand...
One of the butchers is very popular by the
ethnic community because they sell parts of
animals that you can't get anywhere else...

Have a look at the iron roof , that is still
original. In the near futur it will be possible to have
a drink under tre roof. Sounds like a great idea
to me.

Address: Van schoonhovestraat 21, 2060 Antwerpen
This place connects the vanschoonhove
(gaystreet) with the vanwezenbekestraat
(chinatown) , near central station , diamond
museum , aquatopia
