  • The market is easy to get to and not too big, but definitely not small. You can find a lot of treasures here for a cheap price. 
  • Excellent for used vintage jeans, Levi etc. Also a nice canal walk. This is part of the former Jewish Quarter and was in fact thier market in Victorian times. 
  • The big flea market has many stands selling used bikes for a fair price - some will even give you a (short) warranty. A cheap place to have your bike fixed, too. Nice options for food: Vietnamese spring rolls, Falafel from Jordan, Greek pastries...
  • Not whst it used to be. This outdoor market has lost a lot of charm over the decades by becoming very commercial and losing the depth in quaint little stalls. Still worth a quick visit for the vintage clothes, just don't expect any great deals.
  • It's a great market and you are able to find the greatest things. Have a jolly good time, drink a coffee. ...eat chips. I recommend this market to everyone.
  • Waterlooplein is basically a flea market for stoners. They have all kinds of weed paraphernalia. They've even got weed goodies, like lollipops, chocolate, and ice cream, just to name a few. Unlike Dappermarkt or Albert Cuypmarkt, Waterlooplein does not have any food stands. They do have souvenirs and a lot of secondhand stuff for sale. I managed to nab a (working) Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet record for just 3 euros!
  • This is not what it used to be, it is now a bit too touristed so it lost its Flea market idea and the prices are higher than a averag flea market but of you walk equally to the official Flea market Street you can find some cheaper stores with real Flea market stuff, I still love this place it got a great market atmosphere go and check it!
