Street Markets 25 April

May 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This is not your church bazaar. The street markets are staffed by full-time merchants who have traveling stalls. The Amstelveen market, shown here, appears on Fridays and takes over a square.  Some markets operate every day, like the Albert Cuyps market.  You can buy clothes, food, textiles, luggage, jewelry, toys, books, etc. The one closest to us, Zuid-market, has small merchants with hand-made food products, including some you can eat on the spot.  One woman makes several things that contain raspberries-tarts, jams, cheesecakes, and cookies. Another pair make sausage, both dry and fresh.  You can slice and eat dry sausage as an hors d'oeuvre.  Yesterday day we tried some herring;  the new herring appears in June.  I have no trouble waiting for them.
