Organic, antiques, books, curios, paintings or exotic, it can all be found at one of the charming markets in The Hague.
The Hague Market
The Hague Market ('De Haagse Markt') is one of the largest multicultural markets in Europe. Antiques, foreign, modern, inexpensive, unique: it's all here at The Hague Market. The merchandise here reflects the multicultural population of the city. Walk through the food area where Dutch cauliflower is amiably on display beside fresh coriandar, baklava, sharon fruit, fresh fish and yardlong beans. Be delighted by the extensive flower market and feast your eyes on the clothing and footwear section.
Art and antiques market
The art and antiques market is a veritable smorgasbord for lovers of antiques, curios, old prints & books, paintings and objets d'art. The people who buy here love making investments. A cosy stall full of old picture postcards, sorted by theme and in kept in attractive boxes, attracts an amazing amount of interest. Listen to old Dutch songs being played on the organ; behold an antique, tin 'Haagse Hopjes' (little sweets) box from 1890, or find an old painting that can exchange hands for a good price. Bookworms will also love the scores of bookstalls.
From mid May - end September on Thursdays and Sundays from 10:00 - 18:00 at Korte Voorhout and at the Plein on Thursdays during winter.
