Marché de Renens (Renens Flea Market)
The Renens Market / Book Stand
Located in the heart of the charming town of Renens, the local market is an unmissable place that embodies both the richness of culture and the dynamism of community life. Every week, locals and visitors come together to enjoy the lively atmosphere and discover an incredible variety of activities and products.
From the first light of the morning, the Renens market comes to life. Colorful stalls stretch all along the streets, offering a diverse array of fresh produce and local specialties. Local farmers offer their vegetables, fruits and local products, offering consumers the chance to get closer to their food source and favor local products.
Renens market: Activities
But the Renens market is not limited to food. It is a real center of attraction where you can find a multitude of other items: clothing, accessories, handicrafts and much more. Local artisans proudly display their unique creations, sharing their passion and talent with curious visitors.
Besides shopping, the market is full of activities and events that liven up the day. Street artists offer music and dance performances, creating a festive and pleasant atmosphere. Creative workshops are also offered to children and adults, encouraging learning and artistic expression.
The Renens market is also a place conducive to meetings and exchanges between the inhabitants of the region. Cafes and terraces are popular places where you can enjoy a hot drink while chatting with friends or meeting new people. Friendliness reigns and creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Renens Market: Book Stand, Christian literature
Once a month our church is present on the stand. We welcome people who wish to discover our church. Each month two books in particular are chosen to be presented on the stand (one for children and one for adults). These books are generally available on the Maison de la Bible website and in the bookstore of our church open after worship on Sunday morning. In addition to two French books, we offer free Christian literature (leaflets) in several languages eg. Italian, Portuguese, Spanish to welcome the many and diverse communities present in Renens. The stand hosts are happy to welcome you and answer your questions.
See also the events section to see the books exhibited approximately once a month at the stand.
We take our part in this dynamic by being present with other evangelical churches at the Renens market on Saturday morning. This is an opportunity to be available to anyone wanting to discover the Bible.
