It's a cute market that has a mix of everything. Clothes, fruits & veggies, artwork, antiques, herring,..etc. It's a fun stroll for anyone!

When you visit Albert Cuypmarkt, you'll notice two things: they sell tons of bike locks (in every size and price) and amazing food. You still have the touristy shops (which are welcome) where you can find keyrings and other goodies, but you also see a lot of locals doing their grocery shopping here. Try the stoopwaffles (deliciously simple), herring sandwiches... More

Don't come here expecting artisan cheeses and bread. It's mostly a locals' market but with a few nice stalls, especially the one selling waffles! It's nice to walk around and soak up the feel of the place. Worth a visit.

The market is ok- but the stroopwaffle here is amazing! Keep walking till you find it, you won't be disappointed! Best I have tried in the city! The area is also very nice, great shops and cafés.

This is a clean market with a decent variety of goods set in a lovely neighbourhood. It is well-served by transit (we arrived on the #3 tram). The area is Amsterdam's version of a Latin quarter with lots of interesting boutiques and cafés. There was a variety of goods on offer at the market itself, from flowers and fresh food... More

I was really excited to check out this street market, because I had read good things about it on the internet. Supposedly the biggest one in Amsterdam or something? But when we visited on a Tuesday afternoon, I was a bit disappointed because it looked kind of dead. There wasn't that much going on, and I didn't see any stroopwaffels.... More

If you like shopping you'll like this place. If not, walk until you find a stroopwafel stand. 2 euros can get you a fresh chocolate covered wafer cookie with caramel in between. Bring some wet naps and enjoy!

Don't have too high expectation for Albert Cuyp Market, just take it as a new experience at a new place. One can find discounted items but not quality finds here. In general, the atmosphere is good, strolling down the aisles seeing different merchandises is also an enjoyment.

This is definitely a discount market. Nothing here was good quality (or worth buying) at all in my opinion. If you’ve been to a big city before, you’ve seen something like this, and it’s very similar to other city street markets offering discount items.

If you are tired of the usual coach tours and the crowds in the Squares, this is a place to hang out at. Mainly clothes, food etc., but more to just experience a flea market. Definitely worth a couple of hours.
