For anyone strolling by the Nieuwmarkt, you must stop at the vegetable stand and pick up a bottle of fresh, hand squeezed orange juice!

Amsterdam is the city of small markets for me - I saw at least 7 of them during 3 days! This market is in the centre (next to Red Light District) - if You are fond of pretty things it would be interesting to buy something there).

The square is also surrounded by a good selection of cafes and bars with a lot of outside seating - an excellent spot for breakfast or a... More

The open market place was bustling with people when i reached in mid day. The vendors were all hustling and eagerly talking to locals and tourists about their goods and they seems happy to speak to anyone as long you are near their stalls. The Dutch people are some of the friendliest people I've met in Europe and they definitely... More

Very lively centre for locals to gather. Usually have open markets there, lots of great spots to have coffee or beer and just watch everything going on. We were there for Aprilfeest and saw/experienced the rides and for/beer tents with live music.

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.
