Welcome to De Vleeshalle

Welcome to De Vleeshalle. This monumental space, which was once home to the old Mechelen meat market, is now a culinary hotspot in the heart of the city. Twelve stall holders and a pop-up food stall ply their daily trade. The taste makers create fresh dishes to eat while you’re there and offer top quality ingredients to take home and try out for yourself. On the first and second floors, the ‘gangmakers’ lend colour to De Vleeshalle.

Meet the taste makers

Every last one of our taste makers is passionate about what they do, and as varied as the food they offer. Drop in for the ultimate guacamole, the freshest focaccia, real Mechelen honey, aromatic phở or burgers to die for!

Meet the ‘gangmakers’

On the first and second floors, the ‘gangmakers’ lend colour to De Vleeshalle. Interior architects, personal trainers, offices, a make-up shop and a furniture store – all in De Vleeshalle.

De Vleeshalle is the ultimate in cross-pollination.
