Holland American Market brings the Netherlands to Bellflower

The Holland American Market in Bellflower brings back childhood memories to Dave Wielenga, according to an article in the District Weekly, a Long Beach weekly newspaper:

"But there is comfort, too, in the endless assortment of unabashedly sentimental cakes and cookies in all kinds of traditional shapes, along with teas and coffees to wash them down, of course in delicate cups and saucers. My grandma used to pour the tea from the cup into the saucer to let it cool, and let me drink it from there. After each sip, we’d smile and let out a long, satisfied aaahhhh. I haven’t thought about that in years."

From kitsch to cookies, Holland American Market brings the Netherlands to Bellflower. By Dave Wielenga.

Of course, the Holland American Market also has a website.
