Local Shopping in Rotterdam

Local Shopping in Rotterdam

When we are eventually able to travel once more, a visit to the market near to Blaak railway station is a must!

The market is usually open on Tuesdays and Saturdays and there are over 400 stalls selling fresh produce like fish, meat, cheese, fruit and vegetables.

My friend Chris lives in Rotterdam and a visit to this market is part of his weekend routine to buy ingredients for some of the dishes he rustles up.

Next to the fresh market is the Markthal, an indoor market with fresh food stalls, restaurants and bars some of which have mezzanine levels, so you can enjoy your beverage out of the way of the shoppers.

Unfortunately, more and more places like these are closing due to the Coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the globe. I really feel for the people who will be affected both emotionally and financially.

But, it won’t be forever, we WILL get through this strange and crazy, not to mention worrying and stressful time for everyone.

Stay stay everyone, keep healthy and above all remain positive. Sending love and best wishes across the miles to wherever you may be. Much love.
