The Markt is a very beautiful place, during the day it does tend it get quite busy as most probably do. It is very lively full of bars and restaurants, or food trucks incase you just want a passing snack. All the horse drawn carriages are parked here incase you want to have the tour of the city( i highly recommend) also it's a great place to get a picture, you cant not come across this when on your visit to bruges, an absoulte must see.

The Markt is very picturesque. It is very, very crowded during the day. There are so many things to see: horse drawn carriages, restaurants, stunning arcitecture, chocolate shops to name a few. This is a great place for a photo op. There are a few parked food trucks if you just want a quick snack.

Appears to be the Heart of Brugge (Bruges). Its great to look at and has an atmosphere all of its own. Lots of bars and restaurants. It also has streets feeding into it that are full of interest. Yes its very touristy but none the worse for that.

Of course like all Markets there are all sorts of vendors, it's open air, flowers, fruits, veggies, pastries, and more. In the Bruges Markt the border is lined with chicken rotisseries. You can get a whole chicken on wings, thighs etc. They put your fresh hot food in a special bug that not only keeps it hot but keeps in the juices and not on you!

Don't miss the Wednesday market in the center of Bruges? It is a real market with gorgeous flowers, delicious cheeses and meats and lots of "eat on the spot" delicacies. For the locals, this is their food market. It is genuine. For tourists, the Bruges Wednesday is a "photo-op" of the highest order.
