Saturday - The fabric market in Utrecht

Saturday is market day in a lot of places and in Utrecht on the Breedstraat and Begijnhof  from 8.00 to 13.00 there's a large and very colourful fabric market, which apparently, with its 400 years, is the oldest of the country.

Although the family's sewing and knitting enthusiast is my mum and I normally get uncomfortable the moment I step into a fabric shop, I must admit that it's hard to avoid letting yourself go with dreams of crafty projects and hand made bags and skirts when you walk through this market.
