Galerie Fénix Vysočanská Shopping Centre launches indoor farmers’ market.
12 Aug, 2010, Prague
Cushman & Wakefield, one of the world's leading real estate consultancies, is introducing a new trend in the field of shopping centres. The Galerie Fénix Vysočanská Shopping Centre will soon be hosting the first indoor farmers' market.
The presence of farmers' markets within the shopping centre will increase the status of Galerie Fénix Vysočanská and differentiate it from other shopping centres. ''These revolutionary indoor farmers' markets are a way of responding to the contemporary lifestyle of our customers who
want to go shopping in a sophisticated environment and be able to purchase domestic produce at reasonable prices. At the same time, it lends the shopping environment a much more human and personal dimension,'' explains Martin Žížala, head of the retail team at the Prague office of Cushman & Wakefield.
The Vysočany farmers' markets will be held at Galerie Fénix in Prague 9 every Saturday at 8am on the shopping level facing Freyova and Sokolovská streets. The first market is scheduled for 4 September 2010, with regular markets every Saturday.
Visitors can look forward to fifteen stalls at which primarily Czech farmers will offer a wide assortment of top quality domestic produce. The diverse range of food items available at the Vysočany farmers' markets will include fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy and meat products, fresh
eggs, mushrooms, gluten-free sausages, herbs, juices, Csabai and other sausages, and honey wine.
Cushman & Wakefield is constantly on the lookout for ways of improving its services and making shopping centres more attractive places to be. Farmers' markets offer an ideal opportunity for lending the shopping centre a human dimension and filling it with an authentic autumn atmosphere, while also offering customers the possibility of purchasing fresh farm products in a sophisticated environment regardless of the weather. And this is an important factor during the autumn season.
''We anticipate a great amount of interest from Prague's citizens. The Galerie Fénix Vysočanská shopping centre is focused on families with children, young and active people, and it offers them a modern form of shopping reflecting contemporary trends. In addition, it is located directly by the Vysočanská station on the B line of the metro, and provides hassle-free parking in an underground parking garage,'' says Zdeňka Jakšič, Galerie Fénix's director, in enumerating the project's many benefits. As there are no other farmers' markets nearby, the project has received the enthusiastic support of the Prague 9 Municipal District.
Galerie Fénix Vysočanská, which was opened in 2008, features a supermarket and some 80 shops, including cafés and restaurants. This will be
the first time that farmers? markets are held in an environment allowing customers to combine the purchase of fresh produce with shopping for regular groceries, relaxing in a café, or grabbing a bite to eat at one of the shopping centre's restaurants - and all regardless of the weather.
