“Wonderful place to pause for a break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

With the great church in the background, this is a wonderful spot to stop and have a snack, rest the feet and enjoy people watching.

“A great space with stalls selling a wonderful selection of food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We visited the market on Saturday morning and it may not be so good on other days. For us it was great. Stalls selling a wide selection of very good quality food. A really old fashioned feel enhanced the historic setting.

“Cozy square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It is a cozy square and it is the middle of the shoppingstreets. On the square are a lot of hangouts in different kinds. You can eat, drink and go out a night. There is also a museum (teylers museum) and a beautiful cathedral.

“for the market or terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

On Saturday there is a big market here with lots of fresh food. When there is no market, and the weather is nice there will be lots of terraces set up to enjoy a drink or some food. Very nice!

“A fun place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a must see while in Haarlem. It is typical of the European city centers with the market, the cathedral and the town hall.
