Market stands available at Haagse Markt

Published: 24 March 2020Modified:

The municipality has market stands available at the Haagse Markt on the Herman Costerstraat a maximum of 4 times a year. Would you like to have a market stand? You can apply for a permit.

The application periods are:

  • From 1 to 30 April at midnight
  • From 1 to 31 July at midnight
  • From 1 to 31 October at midnight

Branch of trade

You can only apply within a branch of trade in which there is still space on the relevant market days. This in fact means that the maximum number of market stands permitted for this branch has not yet been reached.

Location

The locations of the available market stands change each quarter. You can look at an overview of the available branches and the map with the current and available market stands at the market office at the Haagse Markt on Tuesday and Thursday between 9.00 and 12.00 hrs.  

On request the municipality will send you the map and the overview for free. All you need to do is send an email with ‘Vrije standplaatsen Haagse Markt’ in the subject line to markten@denhaag.nl.

You will need to choose an available market stand yourself and indicate its location in your application. The municipality will not designate a random available spot to you. The map contains information about the rental rates for each available market stand.

Apply

Apply for a permit by going to Marktvergunning vaste standsplaats aanvragen (in Dutch). You can read how applications for a market permit are evaluated.
