Recently the Stables Market has been much extended with a wealth of new traders in the area of the old Catacombs and Arches at the north end. This has made a visit to Stables even more fascinating with international traders in well-lit new shop units offering products of an amazing variety. The whole area has been adorned with massive bronze sculptures evoking memories of the past use of the area both to stable horses that pulled the barges along the nearby canal, and as a location for warehousing and light industrial activities associated with canal transport.
A recent addition to the market is a stunning modern building with a maze of attractive small shops on the ground level, and above a huge and exotically decorated restaurant serving contemporary Pan-Asian cooking.
