  • Came by this market early in the morning before it got packed. Many of the stores were still setting up, but they still had some of the food being made, so you could still order. There were many pigeons flocking around the area as well as one that was dead on the floor, but people just stepped on it. Doubt you'd be able to see it if it was crowded. Some of the stuff I tried included the poffertjes, stroopwafels, and the mini pancakes. Ask for no butter on the mini pancakes because you'd feel gross afterwards.
  • Very popular market in Amsterdam. Here you will find a myriad variety of typical food, cheese, accessories, clothing and so forth. I highly recommend the visit. Save some money to spend here if you like.
  • Great place to pick up souvenirs relatively cheaply. Be sure to check out the various waffle and pancake stands - both are delicious.
  • A really nice long market, full of stalls. Food options are nice and there are few vegan ones as well. There's pretty much everything in the market: cloths, shoes, flowers, food, toys etc. You can barely see it if the market is open but there are lots of nice shops that are hiding behind the market's stalls itself as well.
  • It is a nice market. go there often to buy fresh produce, which is often cheaper and of better quality than what you can found in stores like Albert Heijn or Deen. I also buy razors, electronics, etc. For a southern Europen like me, the market is not mindblowing, but it is definetely useful and worth a visit if you are a tourist
