We were impressed by the big mooring halls and the beautiful auction room. We even became a trader in this lovely auction hall. They traded different kind of vegetables to give us an impression of a real auction. The clock starts at the highest price and slowly goes down. If the price suited you you could press a button and the one to press this button first had bought the goods on auction. We went home with tomatoes and a white cabbage and we paid a good price for both of them.
On this picture you see the auction taking place.And here is a closer picture of the auction clock.After the auction we made a boat trip through the special Realm of the Thousand Islands, the orginial market gardening district. It was a lovely boat trip but good thing the boat was closed for the weather outside was very cold and windy. Oh and last but not least we even saw a nice picture of Ot and Sien in this museum.
