To Do May

Fun, a trunk market!

A trunk market is a kind of flea market where people come with fully loaded cars and vans to sell their fun and beautiful second-hand things. The items are displayed on a rug or on tables you brought yourself.

You will also find all kinds of locally grown vegetables, fruits, garden plants and homemade jams. There are also tools, toys, all kinds of kitchenware, bicycles, books, antiques and curiosities and, of course, clothing.

Circular economy

A trunk market is the place for the circular economy. Good products are not thrown away but sold and used again.

As a visitor, you can drop off items that you no longer use. The market masters make sure that the stuff is distributed again to the market people and not thrown away. This way, as a visitor, you also contribute to the circular economy.

In short: A place where you can browse around and buy all kinds of products at a relatively low price.

When: Every Saturday from April 6
Time: 09.00 - 16.00 hours
