We only experience it once in a lifetime: 400 YEARS NOORDERMARKT. And that is what the guests and market entrepreneurs experienced last Saturday, September 23, 2023. Despite, but perhaps also thanks to, the rain, it was a wonderful party with a special atmosphere. We would like to thank Ans Markus, who shared her experience with the Noordermarkt during the presentation of a newspaper page/wrapping sheet detailing the history of the Noordermarkt is brought to your attention. Also thanks to our stall setter Fleysman and Gotje nuts, who made the party possible. Many positive responses have been received. Thanks to all loyal and new visitors to the Noordermarkt.

Amsterdam is THE market city of Holland
Below the ‘Noorderkerk', on one of the cities most beautiful squares, the Noordermarkt takes place on Mondays and Saturdays.This market has a tradition that originated in the seventeenth century. Through the ages this market has been organised, daily, weekly and annually. Together with other markets in Amsterdam the Noordermarkt was of great importance for the development and flourishing of the city in the golden age. To this day, the Noordermarkt fullfills an essential social and economic role in Amsterdam. It has remained important through dynamic adaptability in changing times. The interaction between the demands of modern consumers and creative market traders has always been of great significance for the attractive present day Noordermarkt.
The original 17th century Pottery market (since 1623) sold utensils and items for daily use to the inhabitants of Amsterdam. After a long ‘journey’ through the years, we often find them back on the stalls of antique and curiosity sellers. These artifacts tell cultural and historical stories about their use in kitchens, living rooms and cellars. Their status is not obvious. Nowadays they have to compete with objects made for the same purpose with modern materials. During the years the range of the market has extended with clothes and accessories. Possibly we can find images of these items in paintings from for example Rembrandt. He was a great collector of these kind of objects and lived in the neighbourhood. Some current visitors continue to believe that they will find a prop between the trade that escaped the merchant’s look.
