How can I get my own permanent area in the market?
What documents do I need to become an ambulant merchant?
You need to fill out a request form for your own emplacement and send it to Abattoir s.a. by registered letter, together with a copy of your company’s registration number, your merchant permit and your passport or ID-card. Requests are dealt with once a week and always get a follow-up in writing.
Where can I get the documents requested?
A company registration number and merchant permit can be obtained from the “Guichet d’entreprise”.
Hereunder you will find three of the most important ones:
Can I come as a private person, just for one day?
Sure you can, even without reservation, but on the sole condition that the things you want to sell are personal things, that were not bought nor produced with the purpose of selling them.
What is the cost involved?
On Fridays: 1 emplacement 5 m² at € 18,00/day

Let’s say I take a subscription, will I have a fixed selling-place?
We do our very best to give the same place to everybody every week as soon as your subscription is valid. This emplacement cannot be sold to somebody else and stays the property of Abattoir s.a. It can be recalled at all times without previous notice.
