Away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, Haarlem's Grote Markt is a must see. The St. Bavo church, the surrounding buildings and packed cafes and restaurants. It is beaming with history and it looks as though each building has a story to tell (and...More

A friendly street market in old Haarlem, there are many things to sample, cheese, meat, fruit and making things to purchase. Prices are reasonable and the quality of everything was good. Flowers and plants are sold every where making a festive. redolent environment.

The Grote Markt is the name of the square which is normally an open public space during the week. It is only on Saturdays that the ‘market’ is happening. Otherwise, there are numerous great restaurants and shops that surround the square with the church occupying a central focus. I would also suggest googling to see if there is a festival happening in Haarlem in the Grote Markt over Easter weekend. Monday is officially a national holiday in the Netherlands whereas Good Friday is not.

All depends on the weather conditions.. In Keukenhof you can specially enjoy all the lovely scents of the flowers at the end of a warm sunny day... so in that case, drive to Grotesque market in Haarlem first, park in the parking garage ‘ de Appelaar’ and you will come out almost at the market! Have a coffee there and drive on to arrive at Keukenhof in time to walk&enjoy the flowers!
If the weather is not very warm, do it the other way round. Monday’s and Saturday’s there will be markets.. so not good for overall view.. pretty crowded..any other day will be fine!
