0 Comment

Saturday, 31 May 2014 from 11 AM to 2 PM, the Riga Central Market is holding an event dedicated to the International Children’s Day. The event will feature a charity concert hosted by the charismatic and affectionate singer Roberto Meloni, as well as creative workshops, a master class in healthy treats, an exhibition of creative works and a possibility to purchase the works of art from the exhibition Portraits of the Market.

“During the summer, the market welcomes us every day with a true abundance of fruit and vegetables, as well as Latvian countryside goodies and other products. Yet, we often see families who have very limited funds to purchase all these nice things. Therefore, to bring a focus on children’s rights to healthy eating, the Central Market is hosting a charity event Food Baskets for Riga Multi-Child Families. Everyone is welcome to attend the charity concert on 31 May to be part of this event and help us implement this wonderful idea,” Anatolijs Abramovs, Chairman of the Board of Riga Municipality JSC Riga Central Market, explains.

Everyone is invited to Nēģu Street Square from 11 AM to 2 PM where Roberto Meloni will be hosting a charity concert featuring the young talents from the vocal show studio Tev un man, dance group Lēra, children’s vocal group Poppy, vocal show studio Rasa and children’s vocal group Momo.

During the event, everyone will have a chance to participate in the creative workshops, as well as bring toys and stationery to the special Charity Tent as gifts for large families, and also make a donation to support the charity event Food Baskets for Riga Multi-Child Families.

Families could apply for the food baskets for Riga multi-child families by sending a letter describing the delicacies and foods enjoyed most by each of the children, as well as the family’s dream recipe. 12 families have sent in their heartfelt stories and recipes, which everyone can read on the website of the Riga Central Market www.centraltirgus.lv, thus getting proof that the support provided is not just an abstract donation, but real and very useful help for large families and strong mothers who are raising multiple children alone.

One of the highlights of the event will be the children’s creative exhibition My Family’s Wonderful Recipe. The exhibited works will be competing for the audience award, so you will have a possibility to vote for the one you like best. The Vegetable Pavilion will be the venue where you will be able to purchase the works of art from the exhibition Portraits of the Market, and 50% of your purchase of these works will go to donation for the charity event Food Baskets for Riga Multi-Child Families.

Moreover, from 11 AM to 2 PM, the Vegetable Pavilion will feature the kitchen of the TV show Garšīgi dzīvojam [Tasty Living] where Dace Gribuste, the chef of Avalon Hotel, will share her advice on how to make stylish sandwiches and healthy treats.

All activities scheduled for 31 May will be free of charge. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the vibrant and creative atmosphere and shop in the Riga Central Market, while also drawing inspiration and positive emotions and providing support for Riga multi-child families.

See you in the most colourful place in the heart of Riga – the Riga Central Market!
