Although I think that maybe on another day of the week (Weds) the market stalls are out, Saturday the big day. The day when the streets get so crowded with shoppers that you can almost feel overwhelmed - especially if you've just gotten off a train from Germany!

This was the introduction to Leiden that my friend, Bryan, got. After getting settled in to our freinds' place we hit the streets and the market area. Between being back in Leiden and being in the midst of all that, I know I was feeling a little bit of sensory overload!

What to buy: Stroopwaffles, clogs and cheese.....what else?

Seriously, you can buy a little of everything at the market. Aside from what's mentioned above, you can also buy fish, meat, nuts, olive, jewelry, clothing..............all sorts of things!

Address: The Nieuw Rijn city center area
