Rotterdam Daily Photo: Saturday market, groceries for the sunday

Every weekend on saturday there’s the Rotterdam Center Market at the Binnenrotte. The place used to be part of the river Rotte, but drained in 1871 for the construction of the railway viaduct on the Rotterdam-Dordrecht line. The viaduct was demolished after the construction of the Willemsspoor tunnel in 1993. Since then, the Binnenrotte has been a large open space, the Binnenrotteplein, that is used on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and during part of the year also on Sundays, by the Rotterdam Center Market, a general commodity market with more than 450 stalls. But now all groceries have been eaten again and we are heading towards Monday and again, until then!

P.S. Its a film photograph again, technical notes: camera: Praktica CX-1. Film: Kodak Portra 400, developed and scanned by the local lab.
