  • Netherlands local market we went to try the local flavors. We haven't been able to eat a chicken they sell bitterballen. fish grilled and roast was good. olive appetizer had a place that sells and it was beautiful. gift and magnet a bit cheaper here. don't look at me when I say cheap amsterdam is expensive.

  • Getaway by Amsterdam, March of 2018... Although lately only critical accommodation and restaurants I decided to talk about this market that I loved! In their street stalls try famous croquettes - bitterballen, French fries, sandwiches-herring - broodje haring, cheese and traditional sweets such as the porffetjes and especially the delicious stroopwafels warm! Very good market for souvenirs. Highly recommended!

  • If your in the neighborhood, fine, go. But there's a lot more to do in De Pijp area which is a hidden jewel away from the more touristy areas.  more »

  • Great selection of fresh produce and fish. Open shopping street fun for browsing by yourself or with friends and family. The market also offers hot food ready to eat along with several different cheese stands as well. If you are not looking for food there is a variety of other stuff as well that changes throughout the year depending on the season.
  • It's pretty good. Does reflect the whole of Amsterdam becoming a Disney World, rather than the fearless frontier of psychedelic sanity it once was, but hey. You can have a nice wurst and still buy a novelty clog fridge magnet.
  • Amazing market to visit if you have more than a day to spend in Amsterdam/The Netherlands. We went here in summer 2017 and had a nice time just walking across the length of the market (which is around 30-45 minutes if you check out all stalls and snack here and there). Really recommend the "poffertjes" (Dutch mini pancakes) stand somewhere in the middle.
  • Nice market with all sorts of stuff. It has cheese stalls and stalls with junk as well as clothing, bags and a wonderful nut stall. All in all a good street market, although it can get very packed. Closed on Sundays. Well worth a quick visit.
  • really really cool. THE place to go for cheaper souvenirs, good traditional food, and also see a bit of the 'normal' life in amsterdam - away from the center with the red light and drug tourism. bought the most beautiful hat there! also there's some cool birds. 10/10 would recommend.
