Sinterklaas Sunday Market
There is a traditional Sunday Market taking place in Westerpark, at the Westergasfabriek, every first Sunday of the month (and some other special occasions). Today was the first Sunday of December and the market was there, lively and entertaining, as usual, despite the freezing temperatures.
The Sunday Market is the place to find all kind of creative things, handmade clothes, jewelry, baby items, home decor products, vintage stuff, freshly made sweets and various snacks and food. Today it was a special Sinterklaas market, meaning that even Sint and some Piets visited the market, and people could shop the last minutes gifts for this occasion. There was glüwine, Christmas decorations and marshmallows.
A friend of mine was there, having her own stand, selling Russian wool shawls, Russian gingerbread and wooden jewelry she made herself. She’s just starting with this business, so the Facebook page is not complete yet, but keep an eye on it if you’re interested in some Russian goodies! I joined her for a while, and it was interesting to be, for once, on the other side of the table. Maybe you’ll find me there next time with a few Amsterdamian products 😉
Here are the photos, to illustrate this lovely crisp day:
