Fish Market of Brugges, Blgium

One of the various sights rated among the first in must see list of Bruges is the fish market. It is a little away from the squares. This covered arcade was specially built for the fish mongers in 1821. Even today, fish is sold in the stalls here.

I walked through it; I got the feeling the whole thing is staged. They have successfully managed to preserve the traditional atmosphere. May be the locals around and the restaurant owners are their regular customers.Nothing much to do here, can’t buy any to try them out in back in our hotel. So, took some pictures. The arcade has stalls for sale of other stuffs too, of course a little away from the fish stalls to avoid the stench.

I was keen to see this fish market in Belgium and compare it with the one I have seen here in Tamilnadu. You can see it here. Bangalore too has some conreted fish stalls, may be I will do a post on one of them.

    Though I dont eat fish , I liked the way the salting process is pictured and presented.
    I believe, the Indian salt fish/fishes is a delicacy , many fish eaters will love, on rainy day.

    Many fish eaters like the salted fish of eastern coast!

  20. love my fish and hence this post
