The market is populated by a community of remarkable participants from all around Holland, all of whom are deeply passionate about the food and drinks on offer. Many of the participants are themselves producers, people who grow, harvest, bake and cook the food they offer.

Their market is a place to explore, discover, taste and learn about all the different foods of Holland (and the rest of the world). Try some Dutch Gouda cheese, Surinam roti, Indian curry, American pie or a freshly chucked oyster.
