The Great Butchers' Hall dates back to the 15th century, when meat halls were indoor market places with centralised sales to monitor the freshness and quality of the meat. The building has a remarkable and splendid open wooden truss roof. If you look up, the sight of Ghent’s special Ganda Hams hanging there will whet your appetite.
The impressive medieval and covered Great Butchers’ hall houses the centre for the promotion of local East Flemish products. Its restaurant is the ideal base to discover the East Flanders’ cuisine from appetizer to dessert. In the shop you can choose from more than 175 East Flemish regional products, or put together your own hamper. Take a look at our website for inspiration.
