After the Cureghem district, a new circulation plan is now also in force in the Pentagon, the zone situated within the inner ring road around Brussels. The changes may also have consequences for those who want to travel by car from the centre to the 'Abattoir'. The changes - just like in our neighbourhood - are being made to keep through traffic out of the city centre and drastically reduce the number of cars. So the car makes way for the use of public transport, the bicycle, the electric step or simply moving around on foot from now on! Click on the photo of the new circulation plan to enlarge it on your screen. You can also find more information on the following website www.brussel.be/goodmove.
Summervibes at our afterwork party BOEREMET ... We invite all of you for another spectacular evening @ Boeremet this Thursday 11 of August. This afterwork party is unique in Brussels and has stolen many hearts in the meantime. Happy Hour is scheduled between 6 and 7 pm. The organization has the right to control the access to this event.
On Wednesday 15 June, preparations for the construction of the MANUFAKTURE started. The contractor CIT-BLATON has put up the fencing to demarcate his site zone (see yellow zone on the plan below). Thanks to the cooperation of our neighbours RENAULT and ERASMUSHOGESCHOOL it will be possible to stock part of the site materials outside our site. This will allow us to keep a lot of parking space free, which is more than necessary given the success of the markets. The first phase of the works mainly consisted of the demolition of old buildings. Our technical workshop has also moved and is now located in the building opposite. In August, after the building holiday, the ground and foundation work will start. Those who wish to use the disinfection and car-wash facilities must now drive through the tunnel (marked on the plan with red arrows).
Joyous news! The ATM near the FOODMET is back in service. In fact, there are now two machines available. This doubling should reduce the number of queues. Moreover, these new machines will work faster. BATOPIN, the new owner of the bank ATMs, has taken over all the ATMs from the major banks in Belgium and is co-investing in the future of the market and the Foodmet at Abattoir. Beautiful, isn't it!
For the first time in a long time, the mouth mask is no longer compulsory on our MARKET and in the FOODMET, our Foodhall. We conjure up a broad smile on the faces of the many market vendors, shopkeepers, visitors and staff. And just as well. It has taken long enough. If you feel safer with a mouth mask, no problem, feel free to wear it to protect yourself and other people. We can again speak of a normal market. The sun is back again too. Don't hesitate to do your shopping at our market. Open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
