Lapjesmarkt

 Breedstraat    

The fabric market at the Breedstraat has been held here for more than 400 years and is thereby the oldest and biggest fabric market in the Netherlands. On 9 May 1597, the Utrecht city council gave the linen-weaving guild permission to hold a linen market two times each year, but today you can shop for fabric every Saturday from 8:00 - 13:00. More than 100 stalls are available.

This is a must visit market whenever we go to Holland. The choice of fabric is amazing the prices are fantastic and the stall holders are all so helpful. Make a visit - if you are into textiles a dressmaker or sewist you will be in heaven!!!
