The shell of the new food hall is coming to an end. The two giant cranes will be removed and the roof completely closed in mid-January. Meanwhile, the restaurant and the social premises’ façade on the roof is clearly visible. 17 butcher shops have already been let. A few remaining stores and fridges can still be rented. View the video of the construction site of our new food hall’s front façade !
Next Thursday we will welcome the police of Brussels at our weekly afterwork party Boeremet. They posed for a charity calendar and they will sell this one under the name "Police Uncovered 2015". The benefit goes to an association of parents who lost a child into a car accident. It costs 10 euro. Be here next Thursday and - for all the ladies - be prepared !!!
Each day in Belgium, three people test positive for HIV. It is important therefore that the population is continuously kept aware of this and wears the little red ribbon as token of solidarity with HIV-infected people. At the occasion of World Aids Day, all people visiting our market this Saturday, 29 November, will receive this red ribbon and a condom for free.
At the occasion of the European Week for Waste Reduction, we organize an animated information day on the excessive use of plastic bags on markets this Saturday, 29 November, between 10.00 AM and 2.00 PM. Hot fresh soup, or a nice cup of tea or coffee will be served thanks to our working together with professional people from the sector such as Surfrider Foundation Europe, Bruxelles Propreté and the Service Propreté of the commune of Anderlecht. Trashbeatz, producing music with trash (what's in a name), will bring us in the right atmosphere!
