  • We took a leap into this market and found several things at good prices to take souvenir. There are stalls of all kinds and even was there where we tested the herring with gherkins (haring), poffertjes and the Stroopwafels.

You can also buy a letter here. Because it is the market, so there are vegetables, fruits, seafood and so can be bought, suitable to cook their own people.

  • I love this place. This is a long street full of shops selling food, clothing, electronics accessories. I go there to eat waffles. There is this shop which makes fresh waffle. I have never tasted waffle so delicious. Not even in belgium. You can find shops to buy dry fruits, fresh fishes, cheap dresses and shoes, books and what not. A must visit place
  • Great place for cheap souvenirs and some fun food. We really enjoyed it the first time we went to Amsterdam so 2 weeks later we made sure to go back. They have some great variety of stands there. We had fresh herring, fruit drinks, fries with mayo and peanut sauce, stroopwaffles, and more. It was a fun experience to talk with locals and try local flavors.
  • There's many tourists so it can feel a bit busy, but by no means is it a "tourist trap" or anything of the sort. There's a huge variety of food for surprisingly good prices. I come here as it is a great shopping experience. When comparing this to going to an Albert Heijn, there is more variety, much cheaper prices, and just being here is a lot of fun. Be sure to bring anyone visiting the city, it'll make their Amsterdam experience better!
  • This is a great example of a market for locals and not one for the tourist euro. Great everyday products and normal prices. We picked up some lovely food items and the smell was really good. Great market!
  • The atmosphere here sucks you in and makes you feel one with the neighborhood. The various stalls of food and merchandise are so numerous to be able to cater to any craving or need you may have. Be sure to stop by the handmade stroopwafel stand!
