Update - 27/04/2020

Dear brocanteur,

We had some hope, but unfortunately the COVID19 epidemic is not yet sufficiently under control. The municipality of Grimbergen has therefore decided to cancel all events, at least until June 30, 2020. The Beigemse Brocante cannot therefore take place on the planned date.

Because we still want to give our market a chance, we are looking at whether another date later this year is an option. We hope to have a definite answer about this by the end of May and we will of course keep you informed.

What does this mean for you as a brocanteur?

  • Are you already registered?
    • You can reclaim your registration fee immediately. We will then transfer this to your account. If you wish to register for next year's flea market, this is possible from January 2021.
    • You can still wait until our communication from the end of May about a possible new date later this year. If this does not work organizationally, or you cannot on this day, we will of course refund your registration fee.
  • Are you not yet registered?
    • We recommend that you wait with this until there is clarity about a possible new date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us.

 

Meanwhile, take good care of yourself and each other. We hope that you and your loved ones are and remain healthy.

 

Hopefully we'll see each other soon.

 

With best regards,

The board of the Beigemse Brocante Op Den Dries.

Welcome on the official website of the “Beigemse Brocante”

Organizing a market where the “Franks” held one in the third and fourth century, is not as implausible as it seems. The “Beigemse Flea Market on den Dries” makes it happening, always on the third Sunday-June. And this for already 28 years!

But why the name "on den Dries"? Well, a 'dries' is a ‘triangular market square’ that the Franks organized on different places, not too far apart from each other. It served as a meeting, to catch up, but also to trade. Even today many communities have such a triangular square. And so also Beigem does.

The first “Beigemse Flea Market” took place in 1992, with 36 exhibitors. Anno 2019 that number grew till 250! This is also the maximum number allowed, because to retain the typical atmosphere of the street market we prefer to not extend this to more than 250.

In recent years, we were always pleased to welcome more than 10,000 visitors. Will you also be part of this!? This year on 06/21/2020!

 

Practical

The market is open from 10h to 18h!

Visitors can come to the market on three different places: people that come from Nieuwenrode, Kapelle-op-den-Bos, Humbeek and related communities are best to start at the intersection of ‘Meerstraat’ with the ‘Beigemsesteenweg’. This is also the only entrance to the exhibitors. Once in ‘Meerstraat’ you can also enter the ‘Coppendries’ street or you can begin at ‘Ten Berg’ (Town Hall Square) and the ‘Beigemsesteenweg’.

(See "Location" for more details)

 

Rules

With the “Beigemse Flea Market on den Dries” summer really starts and so a must to visit. If you are interested in old furniture, paintings, antique, glassware or postcards, you will definitely agree to come along. But as with any market some things must be taken into account. Sales of all types of textiles and footwear, weapons, perfumes, animals, and except for the catering business and the terrace of the organization, eating and drinking is strictly forbidden.
