Fare Magazine Issue 7 (Antwerp) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. In Antwerp, old tram-lines wind through cobbled streets, and the gentle lean of the city’s many well-preserved Baroque buildings create a storybook texture with which you take it all in.
Sitting by the old city docks (first laid by Napoleon) we learned of Antwerp’s storied pasts, and in studios across the city, contemporary designers showed us how their pushing its present. In the heart of Antwerp, artisans demonstrated the craft of a medieval-rooted diamond industry, and as we wandered through backstreets we sipped sour Lambic beers at rustic wood-panelled bruine kruig bars, before working up an appetite and heading out to fill our bellies. From tableside service at French-Belgian bistros, to an old-school Flemish institution you bring everyone and their grandmother, we saw and ate it all in Antwerp—without forgetting to sample the fries.
Fare magazine is a publication exploring the heart of a city through its food, history, and community. Fare magazine is published bi-annually. Fare introduces its readers to a single city and lets its locals do the talking: taking you down backstreets and through forgotten histories, exploring neighborhoods and local institutions, and doing more than just taste the food on offer. The result is a portrait of city life and culture more thoughtful and nuanced than the dreamy conjurings that typify touristic material. Fare magazine is not a conventional travel guide; it is designed to excite and inspire, but also to educate, and each issue begins with a crash course in the city’s phenomena of place, and ends with a full glossary of local terms and histories referenced within.
