The real distinguishing feature of this outdoor market is the fact that seafood is so dirt cheap. I mean, we helped ourselves to generous portions of Gillardeau at 2 Euros apiece, freshly shucked! The proffertjes were also made on the spot, and scrumptious. Definitely worth a visit.

wonderful place to try out Dutch food, like the stroopwafels, raw herring and poffjiertes, the chips in paper cones are also good.

The street is a long one with loads of goodies available at relatively decent prices.. I am sure it's similar to others but I've not been to any other.. Cheap toiletries, t shirts, bags, caps, souvenirs.. But great food.. Stroopwaffels is good... The shop selling fresh grilled chicken is lovely.. I just loved the fresh fish on display..

You can find anything from fresh produce to souvenirs at Albert Cuyp market. Plenty of street food options are available here - Stroopwaffles, fresh smoothies, herring, fried seafood, fries, cheese, poffertjes, etc. Plenty of souvenirs, kitchenware, flowers and trinkets are available here. The atmosphere is like a farmer's market. It's definitely worth the visit. The seafood from Vishandel is a... More

Not worth your travel if you are not in the area. Some food, but mostly rubish stuff you can find everywhere.

Jumped off a canal cruise to pop into this market - not bad but not enough miscellaneous stuff to make it really engaging.

If you like street markets and you are in Amsterdam then for sure you have to visit this market. Amsterdam has a lot of street markets but this is the one you should not miss. If you are there take a coffee at the Schaapskooi or lunch at the Bazar, you will not regret. Here you find anything from fresh... More

Not too far from the centre of Amsterdam to walk, worth going to if you want something a bit different. The streets are busy, and it's a great way to get lunch without paying cafe or restaurant prices. It's good to go at around closing time (5pm) as they sell things off for cheaper, so we were there at around... More

Really nice market, loads of fab food and souvenir stalls. We had some amazing waffles and cheese (not together!) as well as some delicious tapas, and bought souvenirs to take home. It's a decent size and none of the traders were too pushy. If you like markets this is a really nice one and definitely worth a visit!

Long and bustling, this market has many stalks of varying quality and price. I bought some hats, my friend some belts and a purse. There are food stalls, clothes, fish, records, bikes, and much more. Streets off to the side are also bustling. We went 3 times and enjoyed it. Worth going to.

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
