Background
What a day it was! The first-ever Old Amsterdam Food Market was a successful kick-off to CITIES' redeveloped 2014 season of the Old Amsterdam Food Tour.

With a nice day and no rain, people continued exploring the market from open until close. From Frank's Smoke House's beautiful smoked fish and smoked salmon sandwiches to Vleesch Noch Visch's unique vegetarian pitas, and from Metropolitan's bounty of cacao chocolate treats, taste buds were stimulated. To mix in some learning and physical activity, the day's program also featured lovely lectures from Anke de Vrieze of the Old Amsterdam Food Tour, Diny Schouten of De Pasteibakkerij and Sietske Klooster of Melksalon, along with a hands-on workshop by BBROOD, where participants learned to mix their own dough, knead it (physically intensive for 10-minutes), and then pick it up fresh and warm at the end of they.

Below you will find photos to give a better sense of the day than words allow. We are also waiting for videos to be developed – stay tuned to CITIES, as well as our Facebook and Twitter (@CITIESONLINE), to find the videos!

After the success of the day, we are considering organizing a bigger, even better Old Amsterdam Food Market next year!

MORE INFORMATION
With support from Stadsdeel Centrum, CITIES redeveloped a new Old Amsterdam Food Tour for 2014 – equipped with a beautiful map and partnerships with 10 local entrepreneurs visited along the tour. To celebrate these new developments, CITIES partnered with Café de Brakke Grond to organize the Old Amsterdam Food Market, which fits into their running exhibition this month on the theme of 'Labor of the Day'.
