It is a remainder of the free market on Queens Day.
Queens Day is the biggest national holiday in the Netherlands.
The Dutch seize the opportunity to turn streets into a big bazaar to sell their old stuff.
It is like a garage sale the size of a city.
Now, in the Netherlands such public sales are usually prohibited.
This country takes regulations to a maddening level.
But... during the free market everybody is allowed to sell everything.
In this country the abstinence of rules is unthinkable.
Of course the Dutch have special rules for their free market.
Not the Dutch. They are serous about rules, so even a free market is restricted.
Policemen patrols, hunting for any violators before 18:00.
Sigh, will these Dutch never get tired of their own rules?
A great idea for the next year's free market:
Congratulations Johan van den Boom with the year of freedom
