The market for organic, fresh, healthy and fair-priced food, fortnightly, Thursdays, 16h-17h30, on level 2 next to the bar

This Good Food Hubs project aims to stimulate healthy, sustainable and local food in Porto, with the Asprela area as a pilot area.

We hope to contribute to this goal with these organic markets.
Our partners are Shii Coração – Shiitake Mushrooms and Quinta Terra Viva.

In September, the Reboot Project will kick off with the motto: Repair your computer. Change the world.

Recover, repair, update, share… there are many ways for your computer to have a second life, either with you or with someone who needs it. Get involved in ReBOOT and contribute to a circular, fair and responsible economy in Porto.
