The yada Market in Zaandam with a twist of South African influences.


The yada Market in Zaandam with a twist of South African influences.

Enjoy live music 'while enjoying a variety of cultures / cuisines of exotic dishes, delicious cold beer or cocktail and come enjoy the South African wines in our tasting.

During the "stretch your legs" there is enough space to great shopping at the stalls with fun trinkets, to romp with the 'Kids' in children's play areas, we even have a real climbing wall.

The terraces give you plenty of opportunity to chill out nice.

Yada Yada; Your Food & lyfestyle Experience you to watch and experience.

Review of a visitor:

Super place. Great food, from barbecue to sushi and pastries to falafel. Very relaxed atmosphere, plenty of sitting places is nice cushions, hammocks etc. Watch out if you come, because it will not be the last time.

Just love this place, great food, lovely people and a place for the whole family to spend the day eating from different stalls. We had the best spareribs ever at the Braai Club, fall off the bone and very tasty, will definitely go back for more.

Arrived expecting a little more activity and slightly bigger venue but it was still a nice place. The guys doing the potato sticks were rude which was unexpected. The Caribbean/Surinam food was lovely and the lady was so sweet with a lovely friendly smile. The lady at the bar was lovely too.

They did a really nice job here. Unfortunately it was very cold inside, so not very comfortable if you don't bring warm clothes. There are many different kinds of food to choose from. We loved the Siciliaan food, but the pasta wasn't very good.

Had a nice bite with my daughter at an authentic place. Also nice non-food to buy. Clothing, jewelry, aromatic naturalist and more.

We love to go here on Sunday evenings to close the weekend. This indoor market offers world kitchen, an art exhibition, a playground for the kids and ofcourse a lot of market stalls! A really nice and relaxing atmosphere 👌

We've been to Yada Yada twice now and both times thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The best way to get there is by boat from Amsterdam. The food market offers very different types of home made food, like Sate Gambing (grilled goat meat), Cambodian, dumplings, real Italian food, falafel, home made sausages, pies, etc. Also great choice of drinks, children's playground, live...

The Rough Kitchen did not have any of their advertised meals and that was at 5 o' clock on a Sunday... we were offered a hamburger instead of a full "carnivore platter". Hmm... if I wanted a hamburger McDonalds would be a better bet! Sadly we passed on this ridiculous offer :-( and decided to go with the fish and... More
