In Groningen, regional markets are held on a weekly basis for you to stock up on fresh local products. After all, that courgette from the neighbour tastes so much better than an imported mass product. With all those good things the region has to offer, be sure to try some local delicacies at one of the small-scale markets. Following is an overview of monthly regional markets.
Nienoord regional products market
Each first Saturday of the month from 10.00 am until 04.00 pm – The Nienoord regional product market is held at the Landgoedboerderij Oosterheerdt in Leek.
