Plattegrond Downtown Eindhoven

The market wants to

  • be a community of entrepreneurs. Each should be an expert in their field and enthusiastic about their product.
  • be a wellspring of fresh products, where the product is the centre of attention, not the chef.
  • bring back the seasonality of market produce and restore the concept of “to every thing there is a season”.
  • be a large-scale corner store with tastings, i.e. informal fare.
  • offer a timetable that suits the needs and activities of consumers in other words, extended opening hours.
  • work with the human, technical and industrial resources necessary for sensory evaluation, tastings and gastronomical challenges.
  • emphasize both consumer information and consumer training.
  • reflect the gastronomical plurality of the world.
  • be a constant of gastronomical culture through workshops, presentations, food fairs, etc.
  • become part of the cultural offering of Eindhoven, with an area for small conferences, recitals, concerts, etc.

DOWN TOWN GOURMET MARKET aims to become a Centre for Culinary Culture,

where the product is the key, together with the active presence of food and gastronomy-related functions and events. A meeting place for consumer food- enthousiasts and professionals, the gourmand, and those seeking information, inspiration and counsel. A place where you can order out or do your gourmet shopping, as well as participate in activities, sample the products we are taking home with us, or simply drop in for a drink and a bite to eat. A new but traditional market to become, with all foodwishes of the current-day.
