From 1700 the current Harnaschpolder turned out to be a horticultural area. Initially, the area was dominated by farms with vegetable gardens and orchards, partly to provide the urban population of Delft. Gradually the farms were increasingly replaced by modern horticulture that brought their fruits and vegetables (from 1901) to the Delftsche Vegetable Auction to the Westvest. Despite of the disappearance of the greenhouses, traces of the horticulture remain. For example, five gardeners houses on the Dijkshoornseweg, the oldest dating from 1730, have been designated as a monument.
