Det Gamle Grønttorv – Temporary creative space

What happens to a legendary old marketplace for greens & veggies when you move it and tear down the old buildings? 

Well, fortunately it’s not going to be a ghost “town”. The old market is celebrating temporality. Inbetween the old abandoned shops and buildings, new creative spaces are being built.

Galleries, indoors beach volley courts and a motorcycle motel garage among others are joining the buildings. There will be lots of events during the summer and I’m sure that even more temporary ideas will emerge in the next few months.

For now it’s still pretty empty, which has a charm to it even so. It’s exciting to walk around and see the old signs, imagine the busy life there not more than 1 year in the past and watch out for the still growing activities here.

I’m very happy to see this part of town grow. It’s about time it was done. Even though new expensive apartments will be built as well, I will celebrate the temporality of creative underground stuff with the artists there.

It’s a good walk from the city center and as I said, not much is happening, but it’s still worth checking out. Especially for new events coming up during the summer.
