  Galerie Agora is on Rue marché aux Herbes
by Norali

On Rue March? aux Herbes, I would also add Galerie Agora. More of the hippie side but also lots of products of Indian style (silver jewelry, hair product). Also some shops for trendy sneakers (Puma, adidas...), leather vests...

In the past, this mall was so punk- connoted that it appeared dangerous. It has been a kind rehabilitated since then and you can still have the old spirit without the drug dealers, the dronkies. NOW, you can stroll here looking at the items (definitely young- oriented) without any worry.

What to buy: My favourite shops are:
- the leather shops (vests, coats);
- the trendy sneakers shops, items that most of time, you wouldn't find anywhere else in Brussels;

- vintage shops where to find some 70s stuffs (vests, pants, shoes, shirts) and even Japanese motive silk scarves. Well, I bought this scarf, so unusual colours and patterns. They have tons of those silk stuffs.

What to pay: Depending on the item. The vintage leather jacket is of different price than the Japanese silk...
