Local Farmers’ Markets
Get up on time and head to one of the local farmers’ markets to get yummy, fresh and healthy ingredients for a lush breakfast. With the sunny weather predicted this Saturday, nothing beats a nice leisurely stroll over the Noordermarkt Farmers’ Market or the smaller neighbourhood co-operative zuiderMRKT. Both open air markets offer mainly organic and local produce. The local suppliers/farmers are more than willing to talk about their produce, so don’t be shy when you have a question.

A’DAM LOOKOUT is a new attraction to the city of Amsterdam. LOOKOUT is the observation deck of A’DAM Toren (Tower) with a 360º view. Located in Amsterdam North it gives a perfect overview of Amsterdam. Looking at the weather predictions for this weekend we advice you to go on Saturday. 🙂

Made in Amsterdam exhibition
11 March to 31 July
Amsterdam flourished and thrived because of it’s trade, but also because of it’s creativity. The latter was a natural selection due to the open mindedness and mix of cultures of the city. In this exhibition, Amsterdam Museum shows a wonderful chronological overview of the various art forms that were made in Amsterdam over the last 100 years.
