The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on small local producers who have lost many opportunities to sell their products. To help them out, the non-profit organisation Aliancia Stará Tržnica (AST) has partnered with the organisers of the literature and fashion festivals BRaK, Bratislava Design Week and the Urban Market, along with the Bratislava Tourist Board, to make the old market hall in the very heart of the city centre available to them in the run-up to Christmas.
“You will find producers and sellers offering crafts, local food, independent fashion, art and literature all under one roof,” informs the civic organisation AST, adding that the Christmas markets in the old market hall will take place under strict hygienic conditions.
