A few weekends back Amsterdam suddenly turned into a winter wonderland, all in 1 night! I woke up in a white magical world on Saturday morning and all I wanted to do was go outside. And that was a good idea because Saturdays are well known for markets. So we went to the Noordermarkt, one of Amsterdam’s best markets in the Jordaan neighbourhood, situated in front of the pretty Noorderkerk (Noorderchurch). Noordermarkt, Jordaan, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Market Day, Saturday morning, to do and see in Amsterdam, city guide, getaway, city tripMarket day in Amsterdam!

Noordermarkt is situated on the junction of the Prinsengracht canal and the Westerstraat. On the left photo you see Winkel 43, a building on the corner of Westerstraat and Noordermarkt where they serve the best apple pie in Amsterdam. It’s a good place to have coffee and pie (or lunch) after you visited the Noordermarkt! On the left photo you see the delicious dry sausage from the butcher at Noordermarkt.

All but not dry.

I am in heaven. Delicious! As all products on the Noordermarkt are organic, the meat is too. This ‘black pudding’ comes from Chris Dammers, the organic butcher from Zutphen (all the way in the Eastern part of the Netherlands), who drives his products every week to Amsterdam. Therefore it isn’t cheap, but what you eat it real (pesticides and hormon free) and the animals had a good life. This boudin noir is the best I had in many years!
