Welcome to the Dutch Stand

For over 50 years we have been present at the Bazar International and have been able to give financial support to social projects in the Netherlands and elsewhere in the world.

Our projects for  2018 are:

Transforming Faces: is a Canadian-based charity that provides comprehensive cleft care for children born with cleft lip and palate and their families. TF partners with local medical teams to ensure that life-changing cleft care is accessible for all. The Bazar International will support a project run by TF in Thailand.

Stichting ABRI: a Dutch charity founded to provide a wide array of services for mentally and/or physically disabled people in the commune of Almere, the Netherlands. Among other Stichting ABRI organizes a yearly holiday week for their handicapped members. The Bazar International will support this week so that even the people with no financial room to otherwise join, can now also participate.

What do we sell?
Every year we offer the freshest of fish brought to us and sold by a family of fish traders. We also sell the most wonderful cheeses and as that requires very specific knowledge as well, we have a cheese store owner that comes in to sell the cheese. They love selling their goods at the Bazar and complement our stand team in a wonderful way: they enjoy the atmosphere and greatly add to it! Next to this we are slowly becoming famous for our sate with peanut sauce and add-ons that find their origin in the Indonesian kitchen, but have become an important and loved part of Dutch cuisine.

New this year and only after we’ve been getting this request for many years, we will actually be serving bitter balls this year!!!!

But one cannot live of food alone so we are proud that we are supported greatly by THE brand of all beer brands: Heineken! Their support means the world to us and every year, when their shipment is deliverd at LuxExpo/the Box, we feel pride for this great Dutch brand when opening the boxes of Heineken glasses, Heineken coasters, Heineken t-shirts and other goods they send us. In order to have the visitors leave in a safe and secure manner, we have decided to also serve alcohol free beer this year. Heineken is very supportive in this as well and will provide us with their delicious Heineken 0.0.

So. If there is one thing you should be doing at the Bazar 2018, it is to have a Heineken beer and a few bitterballs. It will just simply improve your day 😊.

Presents!
Every year for the last decade we’ve sold beautiful handicraft items. This year is no exception… or is it? In fact, we will add to the space for those wonderful handmade gifts. From beautifully decorated wooden boxes, painted candles and a whole range of products with a ‘bird’ – theme to perfectly crafted pottery: bowls, plates, vases. Make sure you buy all your Christmas gifts at our stand – the receiving party will be so thrilled!

New in the stand this year is an array of beautifully designed paper decorations for your home. Be quick to buy your favorite pieces as we expect them to fly out of our stand! If you want a sneak preview look at the designer’s website: www.juriannematter.nl

Tombola 2018
We are always proud to host our tombola and sell tickets for it because we have some great gifts to hand out to the winners and of course, it brings a lot of extra money in for all the important and wonderful charities that are supported by the Bazar International. This year’s first prize is a 2-persons flight over Luxembourg in a Cesna plane. Other big and fun prizes are a year-long membership to the Golf de Luxembourg Belenhaff, a five-course dinner for four at no other than Léa Linster, hair treatments at Tonio Coiffure, a night in a trendy hotel smack dab in the center of Maastricht and the list goes on! So, buy your tickets, support our charities and who knows, you may even win a cool prize!

Contact
Our committee consists of eight enthusiastic members who are assisted by volunteers before and during the Bazar weekend. Without their support, team spirit and creativity, the organization of our stand would not be possible.
