On Saturdays, Utrecht changes into a market city with allure. The inner city then holds six different markets, which are all within walking distance of each other. But why do Dutch people enjoy markets so much? Maybe because at markets, a distance stays out that is so present in modern shops.

Markets mean fun, atmosphere, and above all contact with others. Utrecht has plenty of great markets – discover for yourself!
