  • On our last day we just wanted somewhere to wander around so decided on spending the morning here. It is a quirky place but we highly recommend both the cheese toastie and the stroopwaffel!

  • An amazing market which is located inside Albert Cuyp on a pedestrian street with a great variety of local food and sweets! You will also find plenty of souvenir shops there where you can buy gifts for friends or relatives of yours. If you are in Amsterdam for more than a few days just feel free to pass by and have a look at it.
  • Typical enjoyable Dutch market. I really enjoyed walking through on Saturday morning. Not too many people. The market opens at 9am but most stalls aren't ready before 10am. Don't miss out on all the traditional food.
  • Do not miss this market when you visit Amsterdam. Do not buy cheese in the big tourist trap stores, come here! Also the whole neighborhood is very nice, authentic and (mostly) tourist-free. Highly recommended!
  • Best market place in Amsterdam. Good deals, relatively cheap as for Amsterdam. Fresh, quality products. Everyone will find something for themselves. Love it. Recommend it to everyone! Everyone who is visiting Amsterdam, this is MUST SEE on map of Amsterdam.
  • It's a good market, on a very long pedestrianised street with the metro station at the west end. The market is a popular tourist attraction so there are many stalls selling street food, souvenirs, and clothing. That being said, it is still possible to buy fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish at the market, so some of the authentic market remains. The market street is also lined with shops and restaurants, so keep an eye out behind the many stalls for other places to visit.
