Visbanken, Delft!

There were once three places where fish could be traded. These layers on or near bridges where fish could be easily rinsed with water and boats where fishermen could come from.

Fishermen of Delfshaven that belonged to the city of Delft, sold their fish on the Kaak Bridge, between Cameretten and Wijnhaven. River fish was traded on the Jerome bridge near the Oude Delft.
Beside the Vleeshal, now known as The Koornbeurs, sea fish was and  nowadays is traded (since the Middle Ages) untill this day and this has not changed.
