organic market amsterdam east
At this farmers market in Amsterdam Zeeburg you can buy vegetables, fruit, bread, cheese and other delicacies. This one, unlike many other markets, is not on Saturday but on Wednesday.
Van Eesterenlaan (at Borneo-eiland), Amsterdam – every Wednesday 11.00 – 17.00
organic market Haarlemmerplein in amsterdam
This market can be found every Wednesday. Often the market vendors here are also the makers of the product they sell and are therefore closely involved in the production. Nice!
Haarlemmerplein, Amsterdam – every Wednesday 10.00 – 17.00
This is not a large organic market, as there are only about ten stalls. But you will find plenty of products there and if you are in the area, be sure to check it out.

more farmers and organic markets in amsterdam just a short ride from the city
urban farm Almere
Every Saturday there is an organic market at the Stadsboerderij in Almere. First get the groceries, then a quick tour of the yard. Look in the stables, or have a drink in the grass. I thought this was one of the nicest discoveries when we stayed at De Kemphaan last year!
Kemphaanpad 14, Almere – every Saturday morning – stadsboerderijalmere.nl
the Lindenhoff Marché
This remains so much fun to do, because the little roadtrip to De Lindenoff is already such a joy. First some shopping, afterwards a drink and small bite in the cafe or garden. With kids it’s also nice to look around in the stables. if you’re not having a car you can always go by e-bike! And did you know they also deliver at home throughout the Netherlands?
Rijksstraatweg 21, Baambrugge – Thursday: 12.00 – 17.30, Friday: 09.30 – 17.30, Saturday: 09.30 – 16.30 – lindenhoff.nl
