#11 of 124 in Shopping in Amsterdam
The Noordermarkt is a square in the Jordaan neighborhood of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.The square is lined by cafés and restaurants. Markets are held on the square every Monday. On Saturdays, a popular organic farmer's market is held on the square. On Mondays a market is also held in the adjacent Westerstraat street.Noordermarkt dates back to 1616 and was originally named Prinsenmarkt, after the Prinsengracht canal which the square borders. After completion in 1623 of the Noorderkerk church, which dominates the square, the square came to be known as Noordermarkt. Until 1655 the square served mainly as a graveyard for the church.During World War II, the organisers of the February Strike of 1941, to protest deportations of Jews by the Nazis, held their first public meetings on Noordermarkt square. This is commemorated by a plaque on the south face of the Noorderkerk church.

  • Lovely to walk around at the flea market and fabrics market behind it. Drink a nice cup of coffee in one of the Nice venues in the neighborhood. In the meantime, a lot of tourists this fun neighborhood discovered.

  • Classic flea market, very cute! It reminded me a little bit to Portobello in London! Fun to take a stroll through the stalls selling items of all kinds! Recommended!

  • Found it by accident on a morning walk. Great Market. Fabulous fish counter, great fresh food and good quality clothing. Well recommended. The best market we visited during our stay.
  • We went on the Saturday—lots of nice stalls, relaxed atmosphere. Possible to get breakfast, as well as go vintage shopping, pick up some nice fruits and vegetables, and hangout. Would go back!
  • Mushroom ravioli is to die for; It was well seasoned. The ambiance was truly delightful and laid back. The wine and cocktail selections were simply but rich. Varities of whiskey and wines.
  • Nice place to have a drink in original Amsterdam environment. Meet Dutch people. Mingle internationally. This is a nice place, to get a feeling of living in Amsterdam. Multikulti you would say in german. My friends always enjoy to visit this place, when they here for visit. You should plan at least 1-2 hours, since there is so much to see and to try all kind of food. Maybe go in a small group with up to 4 people. During main shopping hour, it can get really crowded. Also keep you wallet tide. Amsterdam is full of pick pockets and they know the crowded spots as well. ;)
  • Really nice farmer's market with a lot of local produce and small food booths. There was one organic one that has really nice coffee and lunch options for a low budget. You can get everything like fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, clothes, bread, cake, fries. You can stay there for a long time checking out all the things you can buy :)
