    Historical tour along the old markets of Purmerend. By being granted ‘market rights’, the town of Purmerend was able to develop as a commercial centre for industry.
    Originally a place where life was centred around fishing and shipping, Purmerend gradually developed into a town of many industries: breweries, gin distilleries, a gunpowder mill, a turpentine distillery, a soap works, a vinegar factory, a rope-yard, a shipbuilding yard, and saw- and flourmills. The ‘market town’ attracted many farmers, traders and buyers from ‘outside the area’ which is why the markets where of major economic importance to Purmerend and its citizens.
