Fabric Market in Haarlem – update

Fabric Market in Haarlem – update

So as promised on my last article, I went to visit this Huge Fabric market that took place yesterday near Haarlem (The Netherlands). I felt like I was a “woman on a mission” since I had to report back to you 😉

My first impression was “wow!”. I entered the hall and I could see fabric stalls everywhere. It was really amazing.

I made a first tour, stopping already at some stalls and buying a few meters of fabric here and there, and then, once I have made my overall choice I went back to those fabric stalls where I had spotted some fabrics that I wanted to bring back home. fabric-market-netherlands-for-sewing-projects

The choice was honestly very good, you could find everything, from plain cotton, to leather and oil cloth.

The oil cloth stand was incredible. I wanted to buy every single piece. fabric-market-netherlands-for-sewing-projects

 

The choice of knit fabric was amazing, although a little bit more pricey, around 15 euros/meter.fabric-market-netherlands-for-sewing-projects

General prices ranged from 1or 2 euros per meter, to 20 euros I would say. There were a lot of good choices for 10 euros/meter.

I also was able to buy some coupons for 10 euros.

Overall? I came out of the market feeling very satisfied and with a whole bunch of bags filled with new fabrics!

My favorite of all that I saw was the oil cloth stand. I don’t even know how many different oil cloth choices they have, and they also have the same in plain cotton, so you can play and match them!

I see a new coat, a dress and a trouser here! (well, they are still in my imagination, just looking for the perfect patterns to transform these fabrics into garments).fabric-market-netherlands-for-sewing-projects

And here, underneath the oil cloth beauties, I see 2 jeans. fabric-market-netherlands-for-sewing-projects

I even bought 2 leather skins! 10 euros each! unbeatable!

  1. Hi! I love this market, next one will be Sunday 19 February. Shopping for spring / summer sewing projects :). Also worth a visit is the (in Dutch) “Lapjesmarkt” in Utrecht every Saturday from 9am-1pm. It’s located on the Breedstraat, Utrecht.

    • I haven’t checked the new dates to avoid going and spending all my money again hahaha Are you going on February? Thanks for the tip on the Utrecht one, I should plan a visit!
