8 January 2015 – Rotterdam markthal: food for thought part 3

Fresh food on sale in Rotterdam’s Markthal is beautifully presented and contrasts with the busyness of the outdoor market on Binnenrotte which has over 400 stalls where replenishing stocks results in different priorities. Both markets sell the traditional range of fresh fruit and vegetables alongside a range of exotics that cater for global tastes and cultures but it seemed to me that all the everyday shopping was going on outside where prices were competitive and business was brisk as shoppers leave the market with their bags of fresh produce
