This is a very nice market, in the middle of the town, with lots of very good food stalls in particular. Also great flowers.

We love this market. It has a great vibe to it. It's mostly locals shopping for fresh produce and fish. But it's great to just browse around, pick up the vibe, enjoy coffee or a meal at any of the restaurants (some have outdoor space...More

This market is really awesome, you can find almost anything, and tons of local snacks, cheeses, drinks... The stroopwafel were great, and the sandwiches looked really good. You can stroll around the market along the canals, it's truly enjoyable.

We came here on a busy Saturday morning. The market spans both sides of the canal and is comprised of sections - clothing, fruits and vegetables, cheeses, seafood, baked goods, flowers, etc. It was nice to watch families shopping and enjoying the day.

Market only on wednesday and saturdays. The part where they sell fish is very busy, but try there the "haring" or the "kibbeling", then you know why it is so busy there. The scenery is splendid..

We spent the day with our friends, who live in Leiden, walking round the market. The atmosphere of the town and market is great. It is really lovely little town. We bought various things to eat and drink and they were all excellent.

The Saturday market in Leiden is very scenic being alongside the canals. It is also very practical with lots of great produce being offered. Not a tourist market only or not even primarily. I loved a plate of samplers offered by a delicatessen stall (see...More
