    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.

    Seeing all the different flower shops lined up one after the other was pretty cool. If I lived in Amsterdam I would frequent this place. I hear they have a great market on Saturdays or Tuesdays. Also, some funny souvenirs.

    Largest flower market in Europe and loves up to it name. May appeal to local more if buying bulbs of various flowers is your aim. For tourists, this street is lined with traders selling all sorts of gifts at better price than the main tourist streets.

    Flowers, flowers and more flowers. It's nice to see the various colors and types of flowers but don't expect too much. Most of the shop sell more or less the same stuff but if you go through there are also some nice shops on the opposite side.

    Generally "more of the same". A fairly wide range of touristy tat - lots of bulbs, seedlings and plants, but neither the selection of flowers nor the pricing are particularly different from most other flower shops around town. The stalls have minimal difference at best; most seem to sell the same broad range of things. Worth walking by, but wouldn't go out of the way.

    Loved it si many flowers ­čĺÉ!!! A great variety to choose from, I recommend the one's that sell by piece. They are cheaper. Next you have cheese stores that are cheaper than the one's near the museums and the cheese is absolutely great
