The real Leiden experience: the lively downtown Saturday Market
Oct 2019
Visting the Leiden Saturday Market in the old city center is certainly the best introduction to Leiden. Along the canals between the City Hall and the old Borough, you will not just find all fresh produce and other goods you may fancy at budget prices but also experience the authentic Leiden: the people meeting their friends in the abundant cafés, bars, and restaurants that border the market area, the old buildings, churches, museums and shops in the neighborhood. If you didn't walk the walk and bought some freshly baked fish of flowers, you can't say you have really seen Leiden.

A good program on Saturday
Oct 2019
You will find everything on this market: fresh fish, meat, a huge variety of cheese (you can also taste them), graines, flowers, bakeries, waffles, sweets, vegetables and fruits. It's a nice program on Saturday morning, seems like local people do the same.

A wonderful way to Enjoy Sat am in Leiden
Sep 2019
It was warm, it was busy and very very gezelig!! Seemed people were there as much to connect as to purchase anything. No idea what prices were like, but we loved being there. Sitting with the throngs, in the sun, on the water, surrounded by happy conversation.

Leidsche zaterdag markt
Aug 2019
We always visit the Saturday market in Leiden, even if we need nothing from the market. It is an excellent place to go on Saturdays, good atmosphere, market salespeople whom we know because of frequent visits over the years. They will wave a friendly hallo also if we just pass by. The guitarist on the corner plays well, so does the accordionist. The quality of the products on sale is generally good.

Saturday stroll

Good place to visit on a dry day to people watch, look at the cheese stalls, fish sellers and get a feel for Dutch culture.

Have your taste of Leiden on the market!
Jun 2019 • Family
On Saturday you can visit the market from 10.00-16.30 hrs. It is located in the city centre next to the City Hall and the canals. You can find anything here: from fresh fruit, vegetables, fantastic cheese, bread, candy and fish to fashion, accessories, flowers..... I can go on for hours.....:-) When you are tired or hungry, just pick your terrace outside one of the lovely restaurants (or inside) and enjoy!

Really impressive market!
May 2019 • Couples
We discovered this huge market when we were out for a walk around Leiden on a Saturday afternoon and were really impressed by the amount of stalls and products on offer, particularly the colours of the fruit and veg on sale. Everything looked absolutely lovely and I only wish we had similar back home. There was an evident happy atmosphere throughout the market and we spent quite a while here just wandering around. Definitely not to be missed if you're in Leiden for a weekend.

Such Energy and Colour
Feb 2019 • Solo
I was in Leiden at the weekend and enjoyed an hour or so wandering through the market. Lovely setting too down by the canal and near the town hall.
Lovely smells of fresh baked bread, sweets and hot food. Loads of curios with street performers and a massive array of stalls selling everything from books to hardware to fruit 'n veg.
The noise, colour, clamour and good cheer made it a great way to spend the morning.
