Market shopping in our Misc-store neighbourhood
More and more is happening in our lively neighbourhood; we’ve really looked forward to this Easter weekend. Nearby our store two unique locations are transformed into social markets where you can find almost anything; from organic bread, wine and sweets to fashion, furniture, books and bikes. These individual markets present a diverse selection of fine things with one common denominator: the focus on local goods.
Happy Easter Shopping!
Mercatormarkt at Mercatorplein
Today, the day before Easter, the monthly Mercatormarkt returns; this market is the first organic orientated food market in Amsterdam-West and always offers a great variety of constantly recurring market stands, driven by passionate people who believe in their products. Mercatormarkt represents fresh, organic, original and local goods. Besides that it’s the neighbourhoods’ charm that makes this market stand out from any other.
For more information about the Mercatormarkt and its exhibiting vendors, have a look at their Facebook page.
Local Goods Weekend Market at De Hallen
Nowadays the old tram depot De Hallen is an open house for cultural and creative initiatives. This Saturday and Sunday De Hallen is celebrating the first edition of the Local Goods Weekend Market, which is realized by Indie Brands, Pakhuis de Zwijger and Made in Amsterdam. This market creates a platform for local independent entrepreneurs to show and tell their innovative brand story to a broader public.
We spoke with Anneloes van Gaalen, founder of Indie Brands, it really showed she was very proud to organize a market at such a historic and industrial location. Besides her enthusiasm for the brands participating in the Local Market, she also stresses the uprise of Amsterdam-West as a new destination.
“Because of its edginess and international feel, De Hallen is quite impressive. It really demonstrates Amsterdam provides a range of interesting places outside the city centre. I think Amsterdam-West is worthwhile for anybody to discover; this melting pot of different cultures and individuals is very open, but still has its raw characteristics”.
Local Goods Weekend Market is open 19th and 20th of April.
