Heemraadsplein is a square/ little park towards the end of the Nieuwe Binnenweg. It’s small but nice, with some grass, trees, benches and swings and sometimes a flea market. When the weather starts getting better the flea market on Heemraadsplein seems to appear out of nowhere.
People from all over come to sell their clothes, jewellery, kitchenware, furniture, bicycles and all sorts of other bits and pieces. The sellers arrive at about 07:30 and by eight the place is already bustling. With good weather it will go on until 5 in the afternoon and the square will be filled with casual weekend strollers and hard-core bargain seekers, all converging under the red and white striped canvasses of the stalls and haggling.
It’s not always easy to tell when the next market will be as it’s hardly advertised and the website is not very clear either. As I live facing the square I can check if it’s market day by looking out my window, but for those less fortunate, keeping an eye on the website is a good idea.
