Here are some Easter markets we found throughout the Netherlands, which will be taking place during the Easter Weekend in 2019:

Rotterdam - April 21, Visserijplein

This large flea market in Rotterdam is full of Easter atmosphere. If you prefer to do your browsing a day later, on April 22, you could also check out the Hoogstraat, near the Markthal in the city centre or the Swan Market on Parklaan.

The Hague - April 20-22, Herman Costerstraat

The iconic market at Herman Costerstraat in The Hague takes place during the Easter weekend. Additionally, the picturesque Lange Voorhout hosts a three-day Easter market with almost 100 booths with all kinds of wares, from art and accessories to antiques and oddities.

Scheveningen - April 20-22, Boulevard

The three-day Salt Market on the Boulevard in Scheveningen is the perfect occasion to spend time by the sea. 

Nijmegen - April 22, Nijmegen city centre

Every year on Easter Monday, Nijmegen organises a fair with all kinds of booths and activities. Multiple market areas, an art fair and various children’s games are only some of the attractions.

Most shops in the city will be open, so combining the market with a general day out in Nijmegen is a popular day out on this date.

Vlissingen - April 21, Boulevard Vlissingen

At least 150 booths in Vlissingen offer wares from jewellery to waffles. Shop with a view on the sea, and add a stroll on the beach to your day of shopping.

Another one in Limburg: Panningen, near Eindhoven, hosts a market with over 400 booths, making it the largest Easter market in the Netherlands. Over 25.000 people attend every year, while the charming town’s population is less than a third of that number.
