Lindengracht Market, Amsterdam


This photo was taken on the Lindengracht Market (Saturday food and flowers market), next to the Noordermarkt Market in Amsterdam.Lindengracht which translates into English as the lime tree canal, has been filled up during the modernization of the city at the end of the 19th Century, and turned into the wide street with two rows of the huge lime trees in the middle. Each Saturday, 232 market stands are built along the whole street. Lindenmarkt - originally just a Jordaan neighborhood market, exists since 1895 and since 1922 it is so called day market – it is open up into the late afternoon hours. Today, together with the nearby Farmer’s Market on the Nordermarkt, (both open on Saturday), Lindenmarkt is probably the best food market in Amsterdam.
