The markt is in the centre of town surrounded by hundreds of little gift. There is a store where you can buy a beer glass from each Belgian brewery. It is also filled with many restaurants. Watch out because these restaurants are almost exclusively to the tourist. Not necessarily a bad thing as the price for 2 persons stays reasonable and servers can care of you in about 6 languages! But if you are looking for dinner, more authentic and better value restaurantsare just a corner of street away from the square.
Starting from the markt, there it is also possible to do a horse and carriage guided tour of town. It is lovely but pricey and Brugge is small enough to walk by foot. Your choice !
