The butter market and the piglet market were once the biggest crowd-pullers in this traditionally bustling village. The busiest day of the year in Oldemarkt is Ascension Day. Tens of thousands of bargain hunters visit the annual Lambertus market. The village has beautiful façades and great shops. One striking building is the Veerhuis from 1823, at the Mallegat local marina. The Jabikspaad pilgrim route also passes through lively Oldemarkt!
