    Had heard good about this market, but most of it was knick-knacks or used clothing in big piles. New clothes were standard market range with the harem pants and printed t-shirts.

    Fun flea market; a bit touristy. A great place to look for deals on clothes and souvenirs. Very close to the Hermitage, Rembrandt House and other museums. Easy access from the Metro. Just exit at Waterlooplein.
