Parvis de Saint Gilles and Marché du Parvis de Saint Gilles ( two separate markets?)

Are these two separate markets both located in Saint Gilles?

I didn't see Marché du Parvis de Saint Gilles listed in the market section on the visit Brussels website, but I did see Parvis de Saint Gilles listed. I don't have a lot of time in Brussels but like markets (specifically ones dealing with local foods, food stands and produce) and would like to check out a few different ones while I am there.

Most of the others I read about only happen on certain days so I'll miss them, but these two seem to be open daily. Except for Parvis de Saint Gilles which looks to be closed Mondays.

They're the same place, I'm pretty sure. It's definitely a working-class market rather than a chi-chi one - lots of cheap fruit and veg and snack stalls, but not a place to expect artisan organic food.
