  • This market, perhaps originally dedicated to horticulture, it is now so famous and popular, that almost all banks do not disdain also sales of gadgets and various souvenirs. In any case, to purchase bulbs (or seeds and "starter kit" for cannabis cultivation) the visit required and takes little time. Recommend going there early in the morning you can visit easily.

  • I would have expected more from the oh so famous and popular flower market. Sure, there are dozens of versions and variations, but the markets are not really handsome. Looks obvious to more to catch tourists. A program point you do not necessarily have to take when you're in Amsterdam.

  • He looks even Nice, of the market. Only closer look and comparison shows that this merciless will rip you off. Nevertheless, a stroll through the large market stalls not boring, the seller nice, the color game unreal orgiastic. Especially the dried flowers under the ceiling of the small halls spread something like comfort. If some rain down dribbles even on the otherwise perfect summer day it is here dry and in good hands.

  • Most of the stalls are selling similar stuff. If you buy prepacked bulbs check them carefully especially if they are in plastic bags. We bought a colourful plastic bag of tulip bulbs just checked them after returning home they were all mouldy. Obviously the stall doesn't store them properly. Bulbs in paper bags were OK.
  • It's a interesting place to visit and you can by some fun souvenirs. But buying real flower related things I wonder if you should do that there
  • Bloemenmarkt is the worlds only floating flower market. You'll find all types of flowers on sale, but of course, the most popular is the tulip. Tulip bunches, tulip bulbs, you name it. My plan was to buy some bulbs to bring back home to the U.S. So I did some research and got some conflicting answers on whether or not I could bring them back. In the end, I took a risk and bought some and it was perfectly fine. Although some of the bulbs started growing moldy. If you're not interested in flowers or bulbs, you'll also find all types of souvenirs here. Just make sure you make at least one lap around all the shops before you actually purchase anything to make sure you get the best price!
  • If you like flowers then this place is a must. Yes some of the shops do have tat but there are some very nice souvenirs. Can be very busy at the weekends especially during flower season (March - May)
  • I wouldn't recommend shopping from here since it is quite over priced. However it makes for a lovely evening walk surrounded by flowers and colours.
