Fruit, vegetables, fish and cheese: market day

It was delicious after spicy nuts, fish and chips. I push my way through the crowd to catch a glimpse of the booths. The range of goods on the weekly market is usually advertised loudly, in Dutch, but often also in German: There on the right there is everything cheap, cheap, cheap and only there it is the freshest. It’s market day in holland, pardon, the netherlands. In the cities just beyond the border there are weekly markets on almost all days of the week that attract visitors for a day trip from Germany.

Above all, I like to sniff the cozy strolling and looking, scents and atmosphere. Yes, and then take a snack and continue. Still on my to-do list: eat a freshly baked stroopwafel from the market stall.

A market day can be combined with a city stroll , the koffie verkeerd at the church square or a walk through the old town and a biertje in the Bruin Café.

Here is a partial list of market days in the bordering Netherlands.

Dutch markets in Germany

Dutch markets are so popular with us that they now come across the border to Germany. For several years, Dutch weekly markets have regularly toured North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony with their stalls. The dates can be found on the Holland Market page.

Also popular is the Dutch fabric market, which even visits Berlin, Hamburg and southern Germany.
