This market is definitely worth the visit just to have a nosy around. If you are staying in a Airbnb or renting a house or barge this is the place to get fresh food. From one stall to the next fantastic fresh food. On one stall You can buy fresh fish like cod or scallops and they will batter it and fry it there and then for fish and chips. So you can't moan about it not being fresh. It's not that expensive either

If I was renting I would definitely shop here for fresh food and Jumbo stores for everything else. Avoid Alfred stores to expensive

Make sure your visit to Groningen coincides with one of the Market days! A visit to the city centre isn't complete otherwise. Here you can experience a bit of the real Dutch culture, talk with many of the truly lovely Dutch people, and sample lots of amazing cheeses 🧀 I ate a type of monster sized scampi I have never seen before. Delicious 😋 oh and the coffee was incredibly good. Went back for another cup😍

The Vismarkt, fish market, is a very beautiful market, I would say, one of the best, which can easily compete with the famous markets in Amsterdam. It’s a very multicultural market, where they offer anything from the whole of Europe and the Caribbean, which represents the other part of the Dutch Kingdom in the Caribbean. It’s a colorful event worth visiting as is Groningen itself

Vismarkt is a market for vegetables and fruits, bakery items and other items which are necessary for day to day living. It is in the center of Groningen. The market is opened on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The tourists should not miss this place of attraction. It is not flashy, but it is a market for all house hold needs. One can see elderly persons selling varieties of biscuits and a family or two managing various types of breads and biscuits. Of course there is one stall , where various types of tea dust and powder and varieties of masalas and curry powder available. The fruits and green vegetables are plenty and one also can see various types of potatoes.
One should not miss De Belge Waterloo, a place for friet. Really hot and tasty and it is very fresh. One can have various friet varieties of their choice. But a girl with ever smiling face greets you with a smile and you will never forget the experience after seeing her warmth and sense of dedication to make customers smile and keep engaging customers while friet is being prepared. The art of managing time and people should be learnt from this girl, who goes out of the way to make every customer happy and it adds more taste to friet. Please enjoy friet or french fry

If you like fresh produce markets, you'll love this huge outdoor market in Groningen - why don't British markets measure up to their continental relatives - the vast array of fresh produce / frruit / veg / meat and fish on offer was mind boggling !

It’s an awesome market with many fresh fruits. I definitely recommend the fries in the market! And the Portugese egg tart is also quite good.

This market offers an excellent source of fresh fish and baked goods. It also has some stalls which sell food such as fish and chips or fries. You can purchase fresh flowers as well as handicraft items. It is open on Friday and Saturdays and is usually busy but offers plenty of room to move around and see the many stalls. The city does a very good job in cleaning the market area at the end of the day. Conveniently located in the centre area of the City with many restaurants nearby.

This is the city center and also known as the grottemart. On any other weekday this is the busiest square with open air eateries and bars and the food trucks for Dutch potato wedges and fries ! To see and feel the authentic flavor, one must visit this square on a Saturday. Farmers from around Groningen province come to sell their wares. Fresh vegetables and fruits and meat and fresh bakes and cheese to flowers which are nothing but riot of colors and fragrance! This the most favorite of my market and square...and for anything else theres also an AlbertHein :)
