The venerable covered market of yore has been reborn as a 21st-century hub for omnivores. Here, a list of our favorite new spots around the world.

Markthal, Rotterdam

1 of 15

Even without the food, Markthal would be a showstopper. The interior is blanketed in a giant artwork by Arno Coenen depicting a profusion of larger-than-life fruits and vegetables. It’s also the largest indoor market in the Netherlands, with around 100 stalls and 20 shops and restaurants, from a Sicilian-inspired pasta bar to a Middle Eastern café. Don’t miss: Aged local cheese, or Rotterdamsche Oude Kaas, sold at the shop of the same name.
