Fabric lovers will think they've taken a magic carpet to heaven when they visit the so-called rag market, which takes place on Mondays from 9 to 1, adjacent to Noordermarkt. Down along Westerstraat, you'll find stalls with every possible kind of fabric—beautiful rainbow-colored Asian silks embedded with mirrors and embroidery, batiks from Indonesia, Surinam, and Africa, fabulous faux furs, lace curtains, velvet drapery materials, calicos, and vinyl coverings, all being admired and stroked by eager shoppers. Couturiers rub elbows with housewives, vendors measure out meters, and the crowds keep getting denser.
