New Food Fair

September 1, 2013 in Amsterdam Blog

The New Food Fair turns the Haarlemmerstraat in to a long open air restaurant. The street is lined up with stalls and tables with interesting and unconventional foods on offer. As the Haarlemmerstraat was awarded to be the best shopping street in Netherlands, this is a perfect environment for such a fair. The New Food Fair is held by the shopkeepers of the Haarlemmerstraat and this is the 16th edition.

Expect all types of food, ranging from typical Dutch fried starters to organics treats. Adding to the vibrant atmosphere are street cafe’s where you can drink and have small snacks. Also featured is as organic food market. In the evening there is a more formal street dinner where you have the chance to sit at a hundreds of meters long table with your fellow food and drink enthousiasts.

If you’re looking for a more low key yet bustling event with an emphasis on food and drink, this is a good one to visit. The New Dutch Fair takes place on Saturday the 7th of September and has no entrance fee. The food and drink do come at attractive prices which is another good reason to  go.
