Food lovers rejoice and make space in your busy schedule for the Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt, you won’t regret it. Twice a month this small but heavenly food market takes place: every first Saturday of the month at Noordplein and every third Saturday at Heemraadsplein.
I suggest you fast for a week, fill your pockets with cash and make your way there around lunchtime and have a feast. There is so much to choose from that I had to circle the entire market at least twice before deciding what I was actually going to buy. This is by no means a punishment as every single stall, apart from the ones selling plants, has tasting samples. In effect you could fill your stomach on heavenly foods, not spend anything, yet still devour tapanades, honey, raw chocolate, rare tomatoes, olive bread and raspberry wine.
I went there already for breakfast this morning, and will be going again later on for lunch, but in the meantime I’m going to enjoy my chestnut honey.
