In our DREAMKITCHEN, Cultureghem's dream team processes unsold fruit and vegetables that they collect at the market every sunday into delicious meals and products. Lunch, soup, juice, compote or homemade vegetable sauces. Tasty and healthy products that they share with as many people as possible through partners in the city.
This year, Christmas and New Year fall on Thursdays, while the markets take place at the weekend. In order to offer our customers the freshest possible products, the FOODMET shopkeepers are planning additional opening days. This means that you can shop and buy super-fresh products for your festive meals in peace and quiet, thanks to the easy parking close to the FOODMET. You are welcome on Wednesday and Thursday 23-24 and 30-31 December between 7 am and 2 pm ... Of course, the Friday, Saturday and Sunday markets take place as usual!
Our markets are opened this weekend even for sales of non-essential products. For a drink or a snack, we'll have to be patient, also for the flea market. It's still not allowed on markets. But the general markets and the Foodhall FOODMET with stalls of fruit, vegetables, meat, textile, shoes, fish,... are open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. till 2 p.m. If you plan to come on Sunday, avoid waiting queues and come best before 10 a.m. Please attention for following special measures:
- Try to come alone to the market and to reduce your stay to a minimum
- Visitors are not allowed to drink or eat on the market.
- Tastings or small degustations are also forbidden.
It is possible to pre-order and pick-up your order at some shops. Speak about it to your preferred store manager!
Since Monday 19th of October, the Belgian Government took a serie of new measures to fight the covid-19 pandemie. Thankfully, our markets can stay opened but without brocante (flea-market). We recommend to come on Friday or Saturday! On Sundays, it's always very crowdy. The FOODMET, our foodhall, is also opened. You can go there to buy fresh meat and fish, vegetables, fruits, cheese, bakeries, nuts,... Some of the snacks are still opened for 'take-away only'. The terraces remain closed and foodtrucks are not allowed on the market. It is forbidden to consume food or drinks on the markets. Please respect the rules: wear a mouth mask, keep a good distance from other people, clean and disinfect your hands frequently and organize your visit in a fast and efficient way. We ask to come alone or accompanied by maximum one person of the family. This procedure gives us the best chances to go on with the organization of our markets !
