Pek op Noord (Pek in North) is founded for the entrepreneurs in and around the Van der Pekstraat. There is the street market and the themed market, but it’s more than that. There are small shops in the street and neighbourhood initiatives who support the district as well. Combined they are Pek op Noord.
The street market (Mospleinmarkt), since 1920 a household name in Amsterdam-Noord, moved in September 2014 to its new accommodation: the Van der Pekstraat. All the familiar faces of this market moved along with it, but there is also room for new entrepreneurs. As of October the new vendors with vintage, design, crafts, food and art will join the street market in Amsterdam-Noord. Together we are the Pekmarkt.
There are seasoned market vendors who know all the tricks of the trade and new vendors who enrich the market with their products. They need each other to make a successful and most unique market of Amsterdam. The well-known hard-hitting mentality together with enthusiast, make people curious. All of them love their products and want to sell it on the Pekmarkt.
Some families which have been working for over 40 years in markets inspire the young entrepreneurs; the pride they have, how authentic they are, hardworking, blunt, tough and persistent. The new vendors, in turn surprise the skilled marketeers with their resourcefulness, new approaches, dreams and boldness. Together we create the Pekmarkt.
You can run your daily errands in the Pekmarkt or go shopping for special gifts and culinary surprises. The Pekmarkt is a platform for crafts, good buys, special skills and all other products with a story. A vibrant market to walk around and above all a hang out for neighbours, friends, locals and global citizens.
Together we create the market.. We, with you!
