Its been a busy but fun time in the Benoist household over the last couple of weeks. We’ve had visitors, work trips and social stuff and today is all about clearing up the place. And sitting down in it.
Easter weekend was lots of fun, with friends coming to stay and Lola having an in-house playmate. After several territorial toy-grabbing sessions, they bonded over food and drink. A typical holiday weekend then…
It was a mixed bag of weather over the weekend, but the Sunday turned out pretty sunny so after a mammoth brunch we headed off to our new favourite place, Amstelpark to check out Puremarkt. This is another of Amsterdam’s cute markets, featuring organic food and beauty produce and all that kind of wholesome goodness. Oh and there’s booze too!
Highlights included spicy pulled pork wraps, cheap Hungarian champagne with our imaginary friends and running with ducks. Lowlights included a tired hubby who had to leave early, overly dry lemon cake and being too Northern about the presence of the sun and failing to wear a big coat.
Here’s a few photos of the market and the play areas of Amstelpark, in case anyone needs further encouragement to check it out.
What’s your favourite Amsterdam market?
