Noordermarkt, the historical Jordaan district
Open: Monday mornings (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (near the Farmers Market)
On Mondays and Saturdays, the charming Noordermarkt square hosts a flea market, which is rather reminiscent of a car boot sale at first sight. But in fact, there is more to it on closer inspection. While there are some antique stalls, also expect to find interesting furniture in particular 20th Century chairs, second-hand clothes (sometimes a matter of picking through a bundle on the ground), a specialist button stall, toys, bric-a-brac, silverware, books, the odd painting and war memorabilia fabrics, records, second-hand clothing etc. The neighboring Westerstraat market, also on Monday mornings, ensures a lively and bustling atmosphere.
Provencal pottery originally used to conserve duck fat.
Majolica asparagus plates and tray.
Globes de mariage.
Vintage oil paintings.
Here below, what I finally decided to buy at the flea market.
