Cuijk – Netherlands LARGEST flea market!

HIGHLY recommended by several readers…

This is on my list of places to go before I move. Not that I’ll learn anything or see anything beautiful and historical, but wait… may be I will. After all, antiques and oddities can be beautiful and quite historical. Yep… this is a flea market/antique lovers/bargain shoppers dream.

Only 1 hour and 20 minutes from Geilenkirchen, it’s quite doable too.

Vrije Markt Cuijk
Industrieterrein ‘Haven Cuijk’
Address: Korte Oijen 3; 5433 NE Katwijk
Tel: 0031-(0485) 32 06 06
Web: http://www.vrijemarkt.nl/
Fee: Entrance for 11 years and older is 2.50E, free under 11 years of age.
Parking is FREE.

Just think… 1500 vendors selling art, knick knacks, antiques, curiosities, and all sorts of things you “need” both new and used in over 22,000 square meters of space. Bring a big bag to carry your stuff home. Leave the kids at home if possible. Plan to stay a while.

WARNING: If you bring your children, do keep an eye on them and what they might see. Though there are a lot of treasures here, you’ll have to dig for them and you may find a few inappropriate (x-rated) photographs/artwork in the mix.

Driving there: I’ve been told that the ESSO station on the A73 does NOT take the gas coupons.
