  • The market is filled with flower stalls selling everything from flowers to gifts, if you look down some of the side roads leading off there is some amazing street art to look at too.  more »
  • Here you can buy all sorts of Amsterdam souvenirs but also flowers and tubers for breeding. Colorful and flashy, unfortunately much operation.

  • Definitely a tourist hot spot but I have no regrets about going. It's a cool thing to see the floating shops from the canal side. When you're in them, they feel like any other shop. Tons and tons of bulbs, so if you're into flowers I'm sure you could spend a long time here deciding between hundreds of varietals, but for the rest of us, it only took me maybe 15-20 minutes to window shop my way down the market from beginning to end. The tulip museum isn't a long walk from here, so it'd be easy to couple the two if you liked poking around the market.
  • Wow!! You can spend all afternoon here shopping. It was incredible to see all of the varieties of plants and bulbs. Almost anything connected to horticulture can be found in this floating market. If you get overwhelmed by it all there are shops lining the other side of the pedestrian way that sell foods, alcohol, dry goods and bakery items. Must see!
  • Touristy, but still nice. You'll find alot more than flowers. Refrigerator magnets, shirts, and gifts and souvenirs for back home. Lots of stores share the same products with varying prices. Shop around, and don't be afraid to haggle. I recommend walking around, finding a store that has All the stuff you want, and haggling like the purchase depends on it.
  • This was a very cool place to visit for your first time in Amsterdam. There are A LOT of people in a very small street, so watch your personal items. The vendors sell various flowers, bulbs and tourist items. We just went in August and expected to see more fresh flowers, but there wasn't too many options. Most of the selling items were tulip bulbs. My wife and I were looking for bulbs here which could be imported into the USA, however we didn't find any. We had to go to the Tulip Museum to purchase bulbs that could be imported to the US. It was a great experience to visit the Bloemenmarkt and I would definitely recommend going.
  • Interesting, but nothing super special. Lots of seets can be purchased for different kind of flowers, stuff you've probably never seen before. This is really cool about this place. The prices are getting lower the further you walk into the market. Starting at 1,50€. Though it depends on the art and size of the plant. Fresh flower bundles are barely being sold
