  • Small market and by the way not expensive. I was lucky enough to meet a Russian-speaking guy from whom I bought magnets, 1 for a piece, everywhere from 2 degrees. There are also things, by the way, if suddenly you get wet and nothing else to wear, that is not so expensive everything. There are also shops with seafood, vegetables, nuts, cheeses, desserts. There are even tastings.

  • A flea market with many riding... The food and coffee... Eat the local stroopwaffles and drink coffee in the sand from the counter with the Arabian coffee somewhere at the beginning of the market. Very nicely recommended

  • Mix of stalls selling food, vegetables, fish, clothes, flowers, etc., as there are in so many cities. He doesn't stand out for anything special.

  • Mostly stalls with imported mass produced clothing, bags, shoes etc, a few fish stalls, one true Dutch herring stall, and the best- some fresh flower stalls, mostly towards the end of the week. Some stall holders nice, some really rude.. More interesting shops in the vicinity.
  • This is a good market, but relatively small and standard in its offering. There are a decent number of food stalls on offer, but nothing spectacularly unique or interesting. If you are getting a bite to eat here, not all stalls offer seating, so be prepared to eat on the go. It's a good way to while away an hour or two.
  • This is a great market that has everything food, clothes etc. It's also very chill, so to get away from the most of the crowds I'd recommend this market. The best food I tasted here was the chicken and the waffles. There's a few chicken stalls so I'd recommend getting samples until you find the one you like the most.
  • My boyfriend and I visited this market this morning, given it was recommended to us. It seemed to offer quite a decent selection of merchandise: clothing, food, vegetables and fruit, souvenirs and fish. Although we didn't buy anything, it seemed like the prices were reasonable-high prices for what we saw. of everything, what caught our eye most was the stroopwafel truck, but it wasn't open at 1030am when we passed by. Makes for a good place to walk around in the city, there were many tourists though.
  • A really awesome market with great shopping and food options. I definitely recommend visiting, it is fun just to walk through. I also recommend the little pancake stand. Bring some cash because some stands dont take card
