Markthal Rotterdam – First Covered Market Hall in NL

IMG_1175 copyMarkthal is a huge market space where you can find a great variety of fresh produce and local goods. The space itself is really big: it combines the market, lower level with storage facilities and chain stores, and living apartments, but on Tuesdays and Saturdays there’s also an enormous out-door market next to Markthal. As you stroll between the rows, bumping into hamon legs and smelling the freshly baked churros, you’ll notice that some of the tents are well-known Dutch food chains, others are small local businesses. There are several really good looking sausage tents (especially the French worsten), fishmonger and butcher carts, vegetable and fruit displays, where you can find your everyday produce and something more exotic, like dragon fruit or cherimoya, and a big Asian store, with a great diversity of products. Moreover there are flower and sustainable souvenirs carts and little cafes you can sit down in to try all the delicatessen.
Be sure to have a taste of the blueberry and cognac&pheasant sausages at Monsieur Saucisson (€4 p/p or 3 sausages for €10), earl grey and salted caramel macarons at De Patissier, and banana-toffee muffin at MultiVlaai.
