On Facebook and Instagram, we promote our markets since a couple of months. 'Le Panier de Sophie' is the baseline of our campaign. While doing some shopping, Sophie Pendeville discovered several cheese stores on our market. In the video below she was asking some information to Medhi Gharby, the tenant of the store G16 FROMAFRAIS. You can also find ambulatory merchants at the outdoor market. Attention, by watching this video, you will probabley be in the mood for some good cheese... Not convinced yet? Just visit our market on Friday, Saturday or Sunday... opened from 7 a.m. till 2 p.m.
Allthough still a bit too cold outside at this time of the year, at Cultureghem asbl they are all ready to turn Abattoir into the warmest place of Brussels in the weeks and months to come. Next week, on Wednesday 28th March, KETMET opens its doors wide again to become once more the biggest covered playing-ground in town. For the little and the big ones alike. Cultureghem would not be Cultureghem without cheap and fresh-tasting lunches offered by BARATTOIR (soup €1 + lunch €5 + dessert €1). Wanna bring your own picnic? No problem at all. On top of all this, the new season opens with nice music and free concerts.
If one were to visit the FOODMET roof today, one would have to admit that considerable progress has been made. With no less than 4000 square meters of roof surface, we can without boasting call this one of the largest roof gardens in Europe. And quite an exceptional one too, because fish is being cultivated in large greenhouses. BIGH Anderlecht, our tenant exploiting this “farm” will officially open these installation end of April. Of course, we will be coming back on this more elaborately in due course. In the meantime we bring you some pictures of the preparatory works of the open air garden (partly exploited by “Atelier Groot Eiland” as well) and the terrace of the roof restaurant.
Sophie Pendeville has visited our market and she found a strange vegetable in one of the stores. This asian cucumber is sold at Aya Asian Food, inside the FOODMET (shop G12). Watch this movie (already viewed by more then 100.000 people on Facebook and Instagram). This video is part of a global publicity campaign for our weekly markets at Abattoir in Anderlecht. 'Le Panier de Sophie' is presented by Sophie Pendeville, known from the television. This campaign ends at the end of May this year and there will follow at least 4 other movies. Have you seen this cucumber yet ?
