Purmerend was originally focused on fishing and shipping. Nowadays it is a city where you can spend a fun day shopping. The centre, with the Koemarkt as its centre, has a village look. You can still find one-man businesses in Purmerend that have been run by families from the neighbourhood for years, such as Melkhandel Kuyt. In addition to unique shops, you will also find monuments with beautiful façades and cosy restaurants in Purmerend.
