From Monday through Friday, the Nieuwmarkt is home to a very small market. On one side of the square you’ll see a couple stalls selling basics like vegetables, flowers and cheese.
On Saturdays, the entire square is taken over by the weekly organic farmers’ market. Here you’ll find everything from locally-grown fruits and vegetables to candles and cosmetics. In the summer, there is also a weekly flea market on Sundays.
Besides the regularly scheduled markets a number of special events and activities take place on the Nieuwmarkt throughout the year.
