Fresh vegetables, fish, meat, nuts, falafel, coffee beans, French delicacies and Vietnamese spring rolls. You’ll be able to find all these products and many more besides every week at the Zuidas market, which starts on 2 September. Amsterdam Zuid district council and market organizer Marc-t management have been making preparations in recent months. Residents of Zuidas have long said that they’d like to see a market in the area, and stall holders were eager to add Zuidas to their weekly itinerary too. The market will bring some welcome colour to Zuidas, especially now that more and more homes are being built in the area. The location of the market on Gershwinplein will also draw residents from Buitenveldert, helping to link the two areas.
Start and end times
The market will take place every Thursday – generally between 9.00 and 17.00. However, these hours could be extended until 20.00, in order to find out when the market attracts the most customers at this location. In any case, all the stalls will be open between 10.00 and 16.00. The stalls will be set up no earlier than 8:00 a.m. At the end of the day, after the stalls have been dismantled, the area will be cleaned within 90 minutes of the market closing and no later than 21.30.
There will be 16 stalls to begin with, although there is space for a maximum of 30 stalls. The market will be kept under review until March 2023. An interim evaluation will take place before then, which may result in changes to the procedures currently in place.
