Episode 47: RodenFirst aired: Thursday, 15 October 2015 at 17.32 hours
Roden is an 'esdorp' north in the province Drenthe, near the city of Groningen. Roos will take a look at the Roder market and at the horse racetrack. With 14.500 inhabitants it's the 6th largest city of the province.
Nowadays Roden has an important function with a lot of industry and a lot of shops in the city.
Every year in September the Rodermarkt takes place. This was originally a livestock- and goods market but due to the receding trade in livestock it's gotten to focus more on the goods of the market. The market gets a lot of visitors each year from all over the place. A lot of events are organized as a side subject of the market, a fair, a miss contest and horse racetrack races amongst other things. With InBeeld we're having a look at the “Rodermarkt” and at the racetrack.
