Noordermarkt organic Farmers Market on the Noordermarkt, Jordaan, Amsterdam, NL!
Open: Every Saturday from 9.00 to 16.00
Without a doubt, this weekly organic farmers market is one of the gastronomic delights of Amsterdam. Some even go as far as to say it is one of the best in Europe! In existence now for almost 20 years, it has become an Amsterdam institution...
This wonderfully atmospheric food market is located on the Noordermarkt, a delightful square nestled between the Westerstraat and the Prinsengracht, in the heart of the charming Jordaan quarter. For food lovers in Amsterdam, it is simply an experience not to be missed.
Specialist stalls carry an array of organic produce: bread, meat, fish, cheese & dairy, herbs, oils and of course, all the fruit, vegetables and flowers of the season, and much more besides. Sample crêpes or smoked mozzarella, try some fresh fruit juice or let yourself be amazed at the stunning display at the mushroom stall, and pick up a free recipe leaflet while you are there. In all, over 30 stall holders, arrive before dawn every Saturday to set up shop and trade until late afternoon, come rain, shine or snow. And yes, EVERYTHING is organic.
But perhaps it is the people that give this market its unique atmosphere. The stall operators, always full of enthusiasm and in good spirits, constantly banter back and forth with the shoppers. The shoppers themselves are quite an eclectic mix - gourmands, chefs, Amsterdammers, tourists and expats, but they all contribute to the great atmosphere of this organic Farmers Market. Not to mention the charming little cafes and bars surrounding the square itself - all exuding from the special Saturday Noordermarkt ambience.
