Farm to fork

15. November 2023
During the markets, visitors have the opportunity to experience our Canteen. What makes it special? The dishes that are cooked here are prepared from ingredients from our market vendors, so the ingredients go from the farm directly to the plate. This type of gastronomy is called Farm to Fork.

Farmers of the TRH PIAC MARKT

22. October 2023
For us, Saturday food markets were already at the very beginning of our operation within the Old market an absolute priority.

Did you know that during standard operation we can produce up to 100 kg of biodegradable waste in one day in the entire Old Market?
