A new Food Market will be opened on the Abattoir site and this from Friday 29 May 2015. In this unique covered market hall, you'll find 17 new butcheries and more than 30 other shops with fruit, vegetables, olives, bread, fresh herbs, fish, cheese,... Forget the South of Europe ! From now on, you'll find such a convivial covered Food Market in Brussels. Open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. till 2 p.m.
This Sunday, 24 May, will be the last day that Abattoir's meat hall will be used, i.e. at least for selling meat. On Friday, 29 May, the new food hall called FOODMET will be opened. The new hall will contain no less than 17 new butcher's shops. The origin of the present meat market goes back a long way in the history of Abattoir, until the early eighties. Before that, meat was sold on tables under the roof of our covered market place.
