The nice thing about Lemmer is its small scale. Everything is at hand. You can go shopping in the centre of Lemmer and have a drink in between. Recently, Sunday opening hours on every Sunday have been introduced! The supermarkets are usually open. 
The Saturday afternoons are often very pleasant, because then a surprising attraction or act can be seen at the shops. The weekly market takes place on Thursday afternoon in the city centre, at the Fedde Schurer square, and the Gedempte Gracht. 
Furthermore, there are five very convivial summer markets and an annual fair in the entire town centre. 
It is mostly possible to park close to the shops. Yet, please pay close attention to the blue zone; if parking spaces are marked with a blue line, it is required to use a parking disc.
