Neighbourfood Market Amsterdam

When in Amsterdam visit a market. Today we visited the Neighbourfood Market at the Westergasterrein.

We arrived around 10am. The bad weather meant many stalls were still setting up so we walked to the nearby Bakkerswinkle for a cup of tea and a fresh juice.

The Neighbourfood Market is a new market in Amsterdam. The market is held on the third Sunday of every month in the Westergasterrein in the Westerpark complex. The market runs from 10am to 4pm.

Cooks, growers, bakers, and food lovers unite at this fantastic market. Many of the stalls hold organic produce. There was so much to try. The setting is wonderful. Full of light and warmth, world's away from the cold and wet that was outside.

Our pick of the market was the following:

Dolmas (Dolmades) from de Groene Griek (the Green Greek). This stall sold organic olive oil but it was the dolmades that caught my attention. Dolmades are grape vine leaves that are wrapped around a morsel of normally rice, pine nuts and fresh herbs.These were no tasteless tinned rolls that normally get around northern Europe. These were fantastic little morsels of flavour.

Tapas from Pintxo. This stall had a great selection of Northern Spanish Tapas. Pintxo does catering events. The sausage was a definitive stand out but all that we tried were wonderful.

There was so much to try. Cupcakes, freshly made cakes, English meat pies, gourmet toasted sandwiches fresh produce the list goes on. Thanks to the organizers. After a bit of exercise we look forward to next month's edition.

When in Amsterdam...enjoy!
