I found many special shops in Haarlem, one of them was this shop where they sold all kinds of lamps.
I think they not only love their flowers (look how nice the front is decorated on occasion of the flowerparade) but they love to make their interior as cosy as possible.
You notice that when you look inside the pubs and the restaurants!
In the centre of the city the streets are blocked with a "raising"pillar. You need a key to let it go down and pass.
That makes the streets so great to stroll along: no cars! joepie!
What to pay: I have no idea, as I was not going to buy anything I just enjoyed the goods that were sold.

On Saturday morning there was a small market in front of the city hall.
There are certain things that will never lack on such market and that is a flower stand :-)
Those Dutch are famous for their love for flowers!
What to buy: Flowers, flowers, flowers

You can hardly withstand the seducion to stop at a fish stand and buy some of that young herring...
Even if we can get it in Belgium, they somehow seem to taste still better in the Netherlands `-)
I suspect them to keep the best to theirselves ah! `-)

When it rains and you do want to shop without an umbrella, you can go to Schalkwijk. There are many shops here ith one big roof on it. A lot of them are the same as in Haarlem city centre. If you drive here yourself, get ready....you can park for free!!!

The general shopping area in Haalem consists of the main shopping street Grote Houtstraat, Barteljorisstraat and Zijlstraat. Right in the middle of the Grote Houtstraat is Verwulft. Here you can see this building, which used to be the millenniu building of Haarlem. In big red numbers it counted down untill 2000. Left and right of Verwulft is called Gedempte Oude Gracht, where even more shops are.
Haarlem is a great city to shop. You'll find many big cloting and shoe shops, and many other smaller and specialised shops. Haarlem was voted best shopping city of the Netherlands in 2000. Come and find out for yourself why.

The shop is very exciting since you can taste a lot of things before you buy it. You can buy a lot of gifts here, not only for a party, but also for yourself.
What to buy: You can mostly buy Mediteranean products like mustards, dressings, oils, vinegars, sugo's pesto's among a lot of non-food things related to the food, but that's obvious right? ;-)

What to buy: Many products made of hemp and smoking accessories
What to pay: Very resonable prices

We went for a bite on the top floor of this supermarket building.
The other floors are reserved for all different kinds of stuff you can think of: food, cloths, fait divers.
The Supermarket is housed in a beautiful Art Deco building, really a piece to see, if only for the architecture!

Talking about an original store! This drugstore was opened in 1849 and the present owner is a descentdant of the shop's founder. The interior still is the same as in 1849. In the 1920s the construction of the V&D departmentstore threatened to end the store excistence, but at the time the resistance of the shop's owner prevented demolishing and the shop became an integral part of the new construction.
What to buy: Drugs for animals, oils, candy, herbs and more.
