FOODMET Abattoir has been officially opened

Our project 'SOMA' has now officially been opened by Abattoir nv. Every week on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 2pm you can buy your fresh meat, vegetables and fruit in the new covered 'FOODMET' on the site of Abattoir in Anderlecht, near the slaughterhouse and next to the existing market. Construction workers, market stall owners and Abattoir worked hard to have the food market ready in time, and the result was great: customers found their way to their favorite shops quickly, and appropriated the building in no time. more
