We enjoyed the area and the choices of food. There are many to compare and prices are good. Every Wednesday there are food trucks and other vendors that set up in the morning; fun to experience.

Any vist to Bruges must include the Markt. It's where everything comes together. Great for just people watching. Take a carriage ride. Have a waffle! This is a great city.
