Markets

 
When the weather is nice you don't really want to go inside. Explore the streets of Amsterdam ànd these markets. There are a couple of markets in Amsterdam worthwhile the visit. There are (organic) food markets, (vintage) clothing markets, flower markets, flea markets, book markets and lots more. We have only listed the markets that we think are absolutely worthwhile visiting. Our recommendations for markets in Amsterdam are:
Go to the details & reviews page of the Albert Cuyp Market in Amsterdam This more than 100 years old market is the largest and most famous open-air street market in The Netherlands. The Albert Cuyp Market lays just outside the city centre of Amsterdam in neighbourhood De Pijp. On this market you'll find fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, flowers, plants, fabrics, trendy clothing, fine leather and jewellery.

We especially recommend the Albert Cuyp Market for its fresh fish. There are a couple of them in a row and they all have good quality fish. The Albert Cuyp is easy to reach by tram or bike.
Address:
Albert Cuypstraat, Amsterdam (in between Ferdinand Bolstraat & Van Woustraat)
Open:
Mon to Sat: 9.00 to 17.00
Go to the details & reviews page of  Bloemenmarkt (Flower Market) Amsterdam The Bloemenmarkt (Flower Market) is set-up on permanently moored barges along the Singel, the first main Amsterdam canal. The best, real flowers are at the beginning of the flower market on the side of Koningsplein. The rest of the flower market looks less floral and colourful, because most of the products they sell are bulbs, seeds and souvenirs.

Many of the bulbs can be exported. Ask the salesmen what the laws are regarding the import of bulbs in your country.
Address:
Singel, Amsterdam (in between Koningsplein and Muntplein)
Open:
Mon to Sat: 9.00 to 17.30
Sun: 11.00 to 17.30
Go to the details & reviews page of Spui Book and Art Market in Amsterdam The Spui Market is a small and quaint market in the middle of Amsterdam's bustling shopping area. There are two different markets on Spui: Fridays there is the Amsterdam Book market with antique, rare and second hand books. Sundays - March to December - there is the Art Market, Artplein, with in total around sixty national and international artists selling their art.

Especially in Summer when the sun shines, this is a picturesque market, under the trees and close to the Begijnhof (Beguinage).

Go to the details & reviews page of the Waterlooplein Flea Market in Amsterdam This large flea market next to Amsterdam's City Town Hall / Music Theatre offers a wide variety of merchandise. Some stalls specialise in antiques and second hand goods, others in new clothes, music, fabrics or jewellery.

From origin the Waterlooplein market was a Jewish market dating back to the early 1890's. After the devastating influences of World War II, the market recovered its existence, but never fully regained its former character and liveliness. Still, Waterlooplein flea market is very much worth the visit.
Address:
Waterlooplein, Amsterdam

Open:
Mon to Sat: 09.00 to 18.00
