The Markt is the largest square in Delft, dominated by the old town hall and the Nieuwe Kerk. Ever since the 13th century, it has been where the local market is held every Thursday. If you’re looking for unique Delft Blue souvenirs, this is the place to be. And if you’re tired of shopping, you can take a break and relax on a terrace or in one of the pubs.
