The old Antwerp post office on the Square will be the backdrop of a grand marketplace where both fresh food and prepared food will be sold. The opening is planned for this autumn.

The idea comes from Thomas Wines, also founder of the Magiq mirror tents and one of the brains behind Square Public. Much more is currently known about Mercado, but at the end of this week that will change. (EK)
