The Hague Market is one of the largest multicultural markets in Europe. Antique, exotic, modern, cheap, unique: here the merchandise reflects the multicultural population of the city of The Hague. Walk through the food section where the Dutch cauliflower is laid out comfortably next to fresh ketoembar, baklava, sharon fruit, fresh fish or long beans. Be surprised by the extensive range in the clothing and shoe section. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays you can stroll around the Hague Market from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The Hague Market is also known as the Haagse Mart. In the past, the market was also regularly called De Maag. Until May 1938, the Hague Market was located on the Prinsengracht. Exotic fruits were already sold there in 1920. In 1938, due to increasing traffic, the market was moved to its current location on Herman Costerstraat, in the Transvaal district next to the Schilderswijk. The market has now developed into the largest outdoor goods market in the Netherlands and is one of the largest markets in Europe.
