Hello,

I am searching for a good-deal grovery stores in Zaandam. Friends will be staying there for the New Year break, and mostly they will cook at home. Can someone suggest where to buy food in Zaandam?

There are plenty of supermarkets in Zaandam:

Aldi and Lidl are hard-discounters (only cheap own brand)

Dirk van de Broek has cheapest A-brands

AH is most popular in Holland

That's an answer! Thank you very much!

Dirk van de Broek sells only food or clothing as well? What do you mean by A-brand?

The link works just fine. You have to type Zaandam in to the box next to "Vind" and it will show you a map of all AH shops in the area. Not that difficult really.

Googling supermarkets zaandam will also help.

Supermarkets in general don't sell clothes in NL. If you have a more specific adress or area in Zaandam we could be of more help to you.

So dirk vd broek on 'Behouden Haven' is closest by. Normal supermarket carrying the normal brands (coca cola etc.) . Lidl on 'Westzijde' for cheap own brand stuff, Albert Heijn in the 'Hermitage' building near the station is a little bit more expensive but sells a wider range of products.

Botenmakersstraat is also near the 'Gedempte Gracht', the main shopping street in Zaandam for clothes etc.

a-brand means food products from factories that advertise on TV etc

Aldi and Lidl carry no brands, just their own brands which are cheaper.

But Dirk vd Broek and Ah also carry cheaper brands.
