Broeker Veiling

Broeker Veiling was the largest wholesale vegetable market in Europe accessible by boat. Between 1847 in 1973, market gardeners brought their vegetables to the market by boat. The narrow boats remained moored at the quayside, and from 1903 went right into the auction room! The splendid hall with its wooden pontoons and basins was turned into the Museum Broekerveiling in 1974.
