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