The Pekmarkt is not completely new, but let’s say it’s renewed and back at its original location. Beside the usual products, Pekmarkt combines the traditional, but declining goods with the popular foods. On Friday there’s an organic market and on Saturday there’s vintage and curiosities.

This innovative combination is supposed to give a significant boost to the up & coming Amsterdam Noord, bringing together the traditional working-class inhabitants of Noord with new a crowd of local craftsmen, young city dwellers and tourists.

For more information check out their Pekmarkt facebook.
