In addition, the prices are usually lower than at regular shops.

  • Although on any holiday I detest any form of shopping but as we were visiting some craft beer bars and pubs around this area we decided to stop at the wonderful snack bar called Pietersma Snack Bar we...  more »
  • We had high hopes for the Albert Cryup Market when we got on the tram. We had visions of Portobello Market or Camden Lock. When we got off the tram that sense of anticipation turned to disappointment....  more »
  • We have been in this market with the intent to try the street food typical Dutch. Shame about the day a bit rainy, there were many people and most of the stalls were covered sheltered from the rain. It was still a nice walk along this street. We highly recommend you try the stalls to sample chips and fried fish, croquettes and various cakes.

  • This is a great place to taste some of the local food and buy interesting stuff. I recommend trying the herrings on bread or plain with pickles, the stroopwaffles freshly made, the fried nut mixes, the fruit and vegetable juices and whatever else seem yummy enough. You can find all sort of dutch cheeses and spiced spreads to eat with bread or toasts. They also sell turkish sandwiches and roasted chicken with side dishes. I went twice there because it is so much more interesting than the tourist area restaurants. Also, the neighbourhood is worth a visit for a change of the canals areas. It is near the Heineken Experience so you can do both if you are into that. Don't miss the opportunity for some authentic food!
  • Great market. Bargains to be found. Grocery and fish prices excellent value for money. Textiles and leather also good. Fresh produce more varied and genuine than supermarkets
  • Good and relatively cheap food and leather goods (bags, wallets, etc.). Cheese items are also available at almost half the price from most touristy places that sell them. Definitely a must see and do when in Amsterdam. Best to go around 11am on a Friday
  • Everything you could want on one street. If you are a shopper, plan on spending a few hours. Food and drink stalls all over. Note worthy are the rotisserie chicken stalls, fried fish stalls, fruit and vegetable stalls, Dutch waffles (Stroopwafels) and much more. When I'm visiting, I'll be here at least every other day.
  • Great market. you can buy just about anything from here... Easy to get to by tram; lots of coffee shops / restaurants if you want to stop and watch the world go by.
