  • Where I found the souvenir cheaper (€1 for each magnet) and ate a Dutch cracker tastier. It is worth visiting this street market.

  • Albert Cuyp is one of the better outdoor markets. It can get very crowded so make certain you keep your bags very close and keep an eye out for pickpockets. There are a load of stalls - many of which ...  more »

  • Good Market. U can get clothes, food, toys and more. It's quiet fun. At weekend a bit busy but it's nice at all :)
  • One of the most comprehensive and biggest markets I have ever visited. Fresh fruit and flowers, food stands, dutch delicacies, trinkets, souvenirs, clothes and oddities. Wish one wouldn't have to carry the purchased all over town, it is way too easy to buy too much to carry. 😉
  • My favourite market in the Netherlands! Absolutely loved it. Vegetables, fresh fish, handmade gifts, clothes... everything you could possibly want. And of course the most delicious homemade Stroopwafels!
  • Came here on a Wednesday around 2:30, not too crowded which is good. We started the visit with some plain waffles and stroopwafels. They are quite sweet so a coffee to go with them is highly recommended. We got some lovely Gouda cheese and vegetables from the organic market section which happens to be on only during Wednesday's. There are fish mongers, clothing stalls, salami delis, bakeries and other miscellaneous shops. It's not as expansive as Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne but it's got the basics. Nice for fresh produce and a short walk on a sunny day as it is not undercover. People are nice here despite the fact they don't necessarily speak good English.
  • Nice large market here. Lots of different stalls and many different food options, some traditional. A lot of the non-food stalls sell touristy junk but that may interest you. The vendors are nice and all speak perfect english.
