HELP US to make a book that highlights the unique social heart of the Noordermarkt

On the Noordermarkt, human connection and diversity are still very obvious. For more than 400 years, everyone has been welcome without distinction of color, religion, environment, nationality, age or gender. We want to mark such a place with A BEAUTIFULLY INSPIRING BOOK full of photos and interviews. A book that highlights the unique social heart of this market.

A small team of professional volunteers is now working on the production of a brochure (dummy) that will give an impression of the final book to be produced. The dummy is for obtaining subsidies from funds, organizations and the municipality of Amsterdam. The photos are taken by top photographer Floris Leeuwenberg. For an impression of his photo books, visit Floris Leeuwenberg. €6000 is needed to produce the dummy. Your donation is very welcome at NL52 INGB 0103 0339 39 in the name of H. Engelenburg, stating: PHOTOBOOK NOORDERMARKT. For questions and information, please send an email For general information about the Noordermarkt and the history: Noordermarkt Amsterdam.

Pentecost market Monday, May 29, 2023 was very successful.

After a 2-year absence due to the Corona pandemic, a Pentecost market was held as usual on Monday, May 29, 2023 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. It was a busy yet relaxed market day with nice people and beautiful weather. We hope for such a pleasant Pentecost market again next year. 

There is a reason for no market at wind force 7 and a smaller market in bad weather.

Safety first for visitors and entrepreneurs in stormy weather. The starting point of every market entrepreneur is to always take his/her place in the market. If a market entrepreneur cannot stand, there is no income and the merchandise can also get wet or fall to pieces. At wind force 7, the stalls can blow over, making it no longer responsible to set them up. If you want to come to the market, check the current weather forecast for Amsterdam in advance -if there is a strong wind forecast- via Weather Forecast
