WTF? Where’s the food? Well, at the Foodhallen of course.

Inspired by indoor markets like the ‘Torvehallerne’ in Copenhagen, ‘Mercado de San Miguel’ in Madrid and ‘Borough Market’ in London, the Foodhallen opened its doors in 2014 as the Dutch equivalent of these havens of flavour. A new trend took off in Amsterdam, leading to the opening of indoor markets across the country. But The Foodhallen wasn’t a fleeting trend; it became a prime pit stop for local food lovers and those foodies on a city trip.

The Foodhallen is the home of 21 food stands and 4 bars. City dwellers wander through the former tram depot, devouring a fresh hand roll, taco or Bao bun. Tourists discover Dutch culinary heritage with some ‘bitterballen’ and a glass of beer. While bloody delicious burgers sizzle on the grill, a bartender mixes a creative G&T with mango and red pepper, and the smell of traditional Indian street food drifts through the space. Whatever you may choose, all dishes come with a buzzing vibe on the side.
