It has been over a year since I went to the Noordermarkt on a Monday morning. I just hadn’t had reason to go.
Having just been again though, I really wish I hadn’t left it so long! They have everything!
You just have to spend some time searching the stalls, and fighting your way through the crowds!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, the Dutch are weird. Then again, Australians can be equally tacky.
The diversity of stuff is really impressive!
There are essentials.
Other essentials I guess.
Even more essentials!
I would love to start a collection of these!
But I would want someone else to dust them every week!
It is a wonderful way to begin your Monday. But I keep forgetting just how big it is! It takes a LOT of stamina to make it up one side and down the other!

yes I agree It’s a great market to have a leisurely (?) stroll but it’s soooo early. Did you go for appeltaart and coffee. The cafe there serves the best appeltaart in Holland. I know I’ve tried it.
We didn’t have time to stop this day! Unfortunately there was an appointment to get to 😦
But I have been there! And you’re right it is as good as everyone says 😉
So much stuff! And crowded, too, I’m guessing. Both would contribute to making it invigorating and a tad overwhelming at the same time 🙂
(also, those thongs/flipflops. Please let us know if you ever see someone wearing them! They’re really something else, aren’t they?)
Yep, it was PACKED! I had to time the photographs very carefully in order to show what was on the tables!
I havent’ seen anyone wearing them yet, though somewhere within the haze of World Cup Fever which is upon us … who knows … 😉
Just realized: are those two little dogs sitting on the display table in the first picture? Right next to all the serving ware?
Yes. Yes they are 😀
And by the time I’d walked up one side of the market and got back to this spot, and most of the stalls were packed up or packing up, I got to pat and play with them too! 😀 They were so friendly!!!
