  • Well located, in the Center, near the reembrandt plath, a flea market without equal for being in one of the corners of the world. Has it all and this for all tastes. Go to Amsterdam and not visit this market is impossible, it's like walking in the channels, don't visit museums such as rembrandt or home of the Frank hideout.

  • Pay attention to the *flea* part of this market. Not sure how I overlooked it but was surprised that many of the stalls here were reselling old clothes and the like because I thought it was a traditional market. That was my fault for not reading carefully enough. That said, even as a flea market, I was not impressed with the offerings. Many of the stalls were generic donated clothing being resold, which is fine, but I wish this flea market had had a few more stalls with other categories of hidden treasures as well.
  • Cool area with lots of stalls and vendors. You can buy everything from a cool t-shirt to a pair of boots...to weed cookies and magic mushrooms. I think I even saw someone selling snort sticks. Not sure if everything is legal but it's a good place to wander!
  • The place you should not miss when visiting Amsterdam. It's the place to be when your looking for "special" stuff. Records, glasses, clothes, hats, bags, etc. But also furniture, bikes and all kind of tools. The prices are very reasonable. You can even try to bargain. Just go there and enjoy.
  • An awesome fleamarket that's great for souvenirs, bargains and antiquities. One of a kind art pieces, books, handmade jewellery and extraordinary finds. Nice location by the river. Easily accessible by tram.
  • This is an interesting market to stroll through - you'll find lots of vintage clothing and shoes, art prints, second hand books, Vinyls and CDs, furniture and even tourist items. It's very eclectic. You can also eat at some of the street food stalls!
