Saturday is market day in Mechelen. You can do your weekly shop between 7 in the morning and 1 o’clock in the afternoon. As well as fresh produce, you will also find textiles and fashion, shoes, accessories, leatherware, flowers and plants and much more besides. The convivial atmosphere and good-natured banter are thrown in for free! Stroll round the bustling market or choose the best seat at a street café for a spot of people-watching!
