The New Market square houses a small farmers market every Saturday ("Boerenmarkt") with organic food, delicious cheeses, herrings in a bun, fruit juices and more. Try timing a visit there on Saturday to enjoy it.

Place close to the center of Amsterdam. A nice place to take a rest during a day's sightseeing. A few bars to take a beer of coffee. Next to the chinese quarter and the red-light district.

The Nieuwmarkt area is nice square to hangout with friends and family as there a lot of street cafes and restaurants where you can can just lay back and chill. People do find it noisy and crowded, but personally, I find it lively most of the time. Another of my evening haunts.

There are some good cafes, coffeeshops, bars, around the area, as... More

Nieuwmarkt is a really nice square to just hang out when its warm on a bench, or to sit in a café or bar and just enjoy a beer or coffee. During the day you can find a small market there with vegetables and fresh juice.

Voted "best square in the city" by the Amsterdam Community since a couple of years. Only disadvantage of that it that it is becoming toooo popular and crowded sometimes. It could do with a few less blowshops and more high quality horeca (hotel-restaurant-cafe) establishments
