I was surprised to learn that The Barn Bio Market isn’t where the Bruxellois go to buy their washing powder. Across Europe, bio means organic. And so this market’s shelves are chock-a-block with organic, sustainable groceries and takeaway snacks.
I love places like this. Healthy drinks, fruit, veg and nibbles. A great ethos; the guys here offer refills of stuff like olive oil and cereals meaning much less packaging and waste. And the prices aren’t insane either. Which is never a given when it comes to organic produce.
In the Etterbeek ‘hood. Right by the city’s Parc du Cinquantenaire and a little way east of Brussels centre. The Barn Bio Market was also just around the corner from Made in Louise, the hotel I stayed at on this trip.
Stocking up the backpack with a few healthy snacks before a day stomping and photo snapping around the city.
