The Expat Family Market was founded in 2019 with the first event taking place on May 19, 2019 at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. More than 100 families attended to enjoy the kids activities, learn more information about raising their family in Amsterdam and to meet other international families. The May 19th event raised funds which were donated to the Ronald McDonald Huis VUmC & a special donation of children's books worth more than 250 Euro donated by Bright-Eyed Books (an Usborne distributor).
The second edition of the Expat Family Market took place in November 2019 at the Sporthallen West in Amsterdam West. Once again more than 100 families attended the free event and proceeds of the event were donated to the Ronald McDonald Huis VUmC.
