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 pictures).

Fresh produce, fish, meats and big wheels of the most delicious cheeses to sample. Here you will also find textiles, buttons and braid, scarves, clothing, hats and so much more. Freshly cut spring flowers, blooming bulbs, and branches of curly willow, and magnolia are yours to buy too. A favourite with our teenage daughter was the 20 cm warm stroopwafel... More

萊頓是個靜謐美麗的小鎮,有空一定要去走走。鬧區也都離火車站不遠,步行十分鐘左右很方便。就如每個城市的市集,這裡有吃有喝有紀念品,還有美好的風光和咖啡館及餐廳。 nice town near amsterdam! beautiful and peaceful place, just ten minutes from the central station. there are a lot of restaurants and cafes and also can get some sourvairs there.

This is a fantastic market for choice, variety and atmosphere. All stall holders are so friendly and offer cheese, chocolate and bread for sampling. All produce appeared to be very fresh and although extremely busy, this added to the atmosphere.

Nice little market that lines the canal and a cross road. Lots of cheese and olive stalls who allow sampling before purchase. Good walks around the surrounding areas, mostly closed off to cars but do watch out for bikes and motorbikes zipping past. Lots of eating options as well.

There are so many stalls with so many items! Cheese, fish, flowers, fruits, vegetables, sausages, sweets, nuts, dried fruits...so much selection. And clothes! Boho clothes, cheap clothes, fabrics, pillows, handbags, luggage, and so much more. We also listened to a calliope and some street musicians...fantastic experience.

Love this weekly market, I used to come here when I used to live in Belgium, now even on vacation. You can find a bit of everything, from clothes to food, from accessories to any item you may need. Try herrings, something typical. But more important, enjoy the market as you really can feel and smell its nature.
