Flea market


Flea market and childrens’ flea market
No King’s Day without vrijmarkt in the streets of Groningen!

This year the flea market is located elsewhere: in the Noorderplantsoen. Because we expect thousands of visitors on King’s Day in Groningen, the usual flea market location, along the ‘singels’ (streets) near the central station, is not suitable. But the attractive surroundings of the park and the hopefully great weather will no doubt result in a flea market that is as successful and pleasant as always! Extra this year: a special childrens’ flea market located at the Westerhaven.
