Every spring, Groningen becomes the host of an enormous flower market for a day. The flower vendors take over a large part of the city centre and thousands of tourists from other towns and neighbouring Germany make their way. Be it for buying some flowers or just for a walk, it is fun to see the market.
One thing I surely did not understand was why on my way home I became a witness of Groningen being invaded by farm animals. Not really something you see every day!
There are of course several ways of doing grocery shopping in Groningen. In the following we will provide you with some tips on where to do your grocery shopping in general, and where you will find cheaper alternatives.
