Nijmegen centre

For centuries, the Grote Markt has been the loca­tion of the weekly market. There are two general markets each week, on Mondays and Saturdays. The market stalls stretch from the Grote Markt into the Burchtstraat and the surrounding streets. On Mondays from 8 A.M. till 2 P.M., there is a vegetable, fruit and plant market. The general market then begins at 10 and continues until 5 P.M. (in winter till 4 P.M.) On Saturdays, you can buy fruit and vegetables between 8 A.M. and 2 P.M., and general wares from 10 A.M. till 5 P.M.

A very special market is the Nijmeegse 'Lusemert' (Flea Market), which is held on Monday mornings from 8 A.M. till noon around the Church of St. Stephen (St. Stevenskerk).
