Big market which basically runs straight continually through several streets of amsterdam, selling everything from toiletries, meat, bike accessories, clothes and lots of food stalls. Behind all these stalls are shops too and these are worth a browse, we found some really cool old antique furniture stores, entriguing just amazing! Plus dont miss the little trays of chicken wings 😜

The street food is great and quite cheap. All the rest is not so tempting, nothing special. Recommended for foodies

We went to the Albert Cuyp Market today based on the recommendation of our hotel. It was amazing. You could buy clothes, fresh fish and vegetables, luggage souvenirs and so much more! It was such a fun day as we spent at least 2 hours walking from one end to the other. We bought a few things that we wanted... More

If you're looking for fresh fruits or veggies, this is the place to be. It is a long stretch with stall on both sides. Besides fruits and veggies, you can find many other things there. It is a flea market literally. I think the market only opens in the morning and the nearest tram stop is Albert Cuypstraat. Good place... More

What a nice one stop for tourists... You can find everything here, literally, from food, clothings, breakables, leather items, flowers, etc. Visually and sensorially very inviting as some stalls would provide samples for you to try... Prepare yourselves and your money, especially if you are an impulsive shoppers...

What a great place to wander through. Plan on spending some time, because there is so much to see, and several good snack stops along the way. You will see mounds of fresh fish, and fresh made fudge, cheese displays, eclectic clothing displays, jewelry sales. More, and more, and more to see.

A complete waste of my time. We visited the place after our trip to the Heineken experience. If you are looking for a flea market with ugly stuff go there! The souvenirs were not cheap at all. Same prices as the shops in the center. A lot of people and nothing really to see as a tourist. I would recommend... More

I travelled on the Citysightseeing amsterdam (hop on/off tour bus) It drops you opposite the street from the market but as its down a side street i had to ask directions. I was expecting more from this market to be honest. It was the same as markets in England, fruit/veg, clothes and general tat. I love markets, and a bargain... More
