Every Tuesday there is a market from 8h - 13h. This market is located at the Gemeenteplein, near town hall.

In early 1944, "Mary Churchill, daughter of the British prime minister, was a member of a British all-women "anti-aircraft battery 481 that was stationed at Huldenberg for three months. She was entertained by the then burgomaster of Huldenberg, Count Thierry de Limburg Stirum and his wife Marie,[3] née "Princess of Croÿ. She found the local people very friendly and helpful and also noted ("somewhat priggishly" she admitted) "...the flouting by all of and sundry of whatever regulations existed here, and the wide-spread use of the flourishing 'black market'. This had been regarded as almost a 'patriotic duty' during the occupation, but it was still going on now - apparently unrestrained."[3]
