In 2013, locals and visitors alike have been enjoying the knowledge and tastes we shared in the Old Amsterdam Food Tour. Thanks to the support of Stadsdeel Centrum (the central district of Amsterdam), we are excited to enter a new dimension of this tour (more soon). To kick off these developments, we want to start by celebrating the city and its food traditions.

The 12th of April 2014, from 12:00 – 17:00, we will host a new market concept on the Nes (200 meters far from Dam Square, and historical location of the meat market in Amsterdam). The market is based on re-discovering our relationship with the food tradition, which will in turn shed new light on our present day appreciation and understanding.

The Old Amsterdam Food Market not only features a selection of the best local ingredients, but also offers workshops and tasting experiences, as several local entrepreneurs will work with the visitors to prepare food following traditional methods.

Be ready to discover unimaginable ingredient combinations and edible items you did not know existed…trust us, it will be delicious.
