  • Heard about the store so I wanted to check it out around lunchtime. When I went, there were lots of tourist shops with their tents and about 25% of them were food stalls. For stroopwaffles, I went...  more »
  • Excellent market. Everything is very fresh and there's a wide variety of things to buy. I would come again!  more »
  • The market is quite large and has some food and different things to buy from wool, clothes, electronics, cellphone, food ingredients etc  more »
  • 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
