From that one year, it has not stopped being present in the life of the local inhabitants, and soon the tourism found in him a privileged event to visit.
So it was the development of this market that at present would be difficult to think about a flower that could not be there. From the infaltables Dutch tulips, emblem of the local flora, to cypresses of interiors and plants coming from the Frisias islands; everything has its space in this place.
And it is that by anything it does not occupy in our days an extension of four pictures, that initiates in the crossing between the Singel channel and the Koningsplein place. It is known by the Dutch like the Bloemenmarkt, and can be acquired there typical to souvenir to take like memory of the stroll.
Like historical reference to its beginnings, the market is carried out on floating barges, which identifies its characteristic enchantment. In the past, the flowers moved from different places from the country in those flat rafts, although today they are only relics.
