In the Netherlands, if you want to trade from a stall or a van, on or along a (public) road or public space, you need a market trader's licence (standplaatsvergunning).

You can obtain this licence from the municipal authorities. Each municipality may have different rules regarding:

  • Permanent marketplaces
  • Temporary marketplaces
  • Seasonal marketplaces (ice-cream, fruit or Christmas tree stalls)
