Be an auctioneer and discover what happens at an auction

The BroekerVeiling, in the Geestmerambacht polder in the province of North Holland, was the first and last sail-through vegetable auction in the world. It’s been a unique museum since 1973. See how vegetables used to be auctioned here.

The sail-through auction house

Discover the story of an area that was once made up of over 15,000 islands. The first and last sail-through vegetable auction house in the world was located among these islands. In 1973, it became a museum. Go back in time with gardener Arie and learn how the produce was auctioned. If you like, you can sail through the remains of the Realm of a Thousand Islands. Or be inspired by the various exhibitions.
