De Boerenmarkt is one of the country’s largest natural product markets. This market takes place every Saturday on the square in front of the church between Noordermarkt and Noorderkerkstraat.

History
Founded in the late 12th century as a small fishing village on the banks of the Amstel.

Amsterdam has one of the largest historic city centres in Europe, dating largely from the 17th century. At this time, a series of concentric, semi-circular canals were dug around the old city center. The canals continue to define Amsterdam’s appearance today.

Transportation
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is located 15 kilometers southwest of downtown.
