Goes,

The 'goose' town of Goes (approx. 35,000 inhabitants) lies at the centre of Zeeland, on the Veerse Meer lake and the Oosterschelde. The municipality of Goes comprises the town of Goes and the surrounding villages of Kloetinge, 's-Heer Hendrikskinderen, 's-Heer Arendskerke, Wilhelminadorp, Kattendijke, Wolphaartsdijk and Oud-Sabbinge.

The town's rich history can be seen in its many historic buildings and monuments, the enclosed town harbour, and the fortifications around the centre. Goes is the only town in Zuid (South) Beveland and Noord (North) Beveland, and therefore serves as a focal point for the whole region.

Goes's markets and shops are well known among shoppers from far afield. What began in the fourteenth century as a local market (then, too, held on Tuesday), has grown into one of the most pleasant markets in Zeeland. On Saturdays there is also a vegetable, fruit and fish market.

I love shopping in Goes...

The shopping area begins at the market place, with a wide variety of shops. The small winding streets combine historic intimacy with modern shopping facilities. All in all, Goes is the shopping centre of Zeeland, and an Eldorado for holidaymakers who want to spend the day shopping.
