Noordermarkt – Best Saturday Market
The Northern Market or, in Dutch, De Noordermarkt. This is actually 3 markets in one. There is a Farmers Market with a Flea Market adjoining it as well as a Street Market just around the corner on the Lindengracht. So you really get the best of all types of a market! It is open all day and right next door to the best apple tart shop in town, ‘Winkel’ (see eating).
The Farmers Market has lots of free nibbles if you are feeling peckish (and broke). There is a tempting bread stall where they bake the bread onsite in a large bakery/trailer. The Flea Market is a goodie with books, clothes, and brick-a-brack and the Street Market is groaning with cheaper eats than the Farmers Market as well as clothes, household goods, veg, fish, meat etc.
The Noordermarkt is in the Jordaan district in front of the Northern Church (Noorderkerk) and right on the Prinsengracht, on its eastern edge. The Lindengracht Street Market also touches the Prinsengracht just to the north of the Flea Market, but they are a block away from each other so you have to walk a bit. GO!
