In Holland every town has market day. Vendors set up in the square selling their wares. Wormerveer’s market day is Wednesday. So on my first full day in The Netherlands Brenda
and I went grocery shopping!
I did notice that Brenda’s fruits and vegetables do not last as long as the veggies and fruits I buy in the States. It makes me wonder what’s in the food I eat.
Cheese is a major part of Dutch society. The cheese and potato vendors seemed to be among the busiest booths.
When we finished our shopping for the week Brenda treated me to Freits with Freitsaus (French Fries with a mayonnaissy like sauce on them).
Walking back from market I got some shots of Brenda’s neighborhood!
In case you are wondering I did make it out of Wormerveer. On Friday we will explore Amsterdam together. Check in tomorrow because PAstor Wrinkles will be back with more chapter charts….
My wife us of Dutch descent – i would love to go and experience the culture myself. I hope you have a great time!
**is** of Dutch descent… 🙂
I did have a great time! If you ever get the chance go! It is a beautiful country!
loved that funky car! and oh “Freits” is fries?
I’d like to drive that car. I’ll have to catch up with Pastor Wrinkles when I get back from a short vacation with Tom. Love the pictures and I really like Brenda’s dream house.
I love my dream house too!!!! SIGH*****
Maybe someday sister!
What surprised us most when we were in the Netherlands was the gleaming windows of every house. We reckoned they would have to wash them every day to keep them so clean.
I thought the same. I was also a little shocked that the people kept there shades wide open. That’s not really something we do in New England.
Thank you for sharing the Netherlands with us! You broaden my horizons! God bless you in your travels, Pastor J!
Thanks Deb! Hope you enjoy the trip through the blog!
