Beautiful and charming

Beautiful. Charming. 7 minute can ride from the train station, with St Bavo church as part of the square. (Also worth a visit) Plenty of cafes in the area.

The big Market Place is situated in the heart of Haarlem and a must for every visitor of Haarlem. The beautiful architecture of buildings around this place is very beautiful. The impressive cathedral with st famous organ and the town Hall as well as the other buildings are very interesting and make the place complete. It's history of the first... More

Haarlem is a smaller, more navigable city than Amsterdam, so the majority of things I wanted to see were quite near the square. Right on the square are St. Bavo's Church and De Hallen museum - and an excellent gelato and waffle shop with places to sit.

This was a great market to get fresh food at a great price. Our only regret is that we visited on our final day of a 4 day stay in Amsterdam. We enjoyed a few snacks while there and bought a few things we could bring home with us--like nuts and candies. We highly recommend going when the Market is... More

We're in Haarlem for a few days and ran across the market this morning when getting provisions to take on a bike ride to the beach. While relatively small, there is a lot of variety. Definitely go to the De Verleiding bakery stall...wonderful apple turnover, Dutch apple pie, and many other bread & pastry options...yum! And there is a lot... More

Within the city of Haarlem is the Grote market, popped up on Saturday the area is choca block with traders, selling everything from fridge magnets to more unusual gifts. Haarlem also can boast about the amazing amount of cafes, restaurants just a stones throw away from the market. Definitely worth a visit, some might say this city is real dutch... More

Great little market in this beautiful square. Great area to grab lunch or just find somewhere to sit and relax. Haarlem overall is a great place to stay or at least take a day trip from Amsterdam.

Haarlem is a beautiful small city with a lot of history and plenty of restaurants and shops. Grand Market is beautiful with on Saturday a full day market, a bit more upscale than usual. Check out the tourist information at the Grote Market, they offer outstanding guided tours for 7,50 euro, you get yo see do much more than you... More
