This is the best market we came across in Amsterdam. So much to see, that even if like us you don't purchase anything, it's still worth a visit. Many different types of food for sale as well as clothing, shoes, furniture and beauty/toiletry products. Would definitely return during our next visit to Amsterdam!

We had great fun visiting this plentiful market with great produce and lots to look at. The area is worth a visit, providing a glimpse of a different Amsterdam from the old canals etc. Easy to get to by foot or tram. Apart from food we bought bike accessories and 2nd hand children's cloths, which were fun things to bring... More

This place was a fantastic visit for us. Lots to see, great produce, and awesome Dutch fast food. Just stroll through, or eat your way through the stalls! Small market compared to markets in Asian countries but definitely comparable to others. Cheap clothing items, luggage, and souvenirs available. I bought a sturdy pannier and a bike bell - decorative ones... More

The Albert Cuyp market is a lovely market to walk around - nice wide variety of things to buy and look at. A fun place to buy some touristy items as well as buy some clothes that the local Dutch people wear.

Very busy with lots of different shops and vendors. Unique souvenirs to pick up include cheese, dutch themed fabric for sewing, flea market antiques and dishes, 5 to 10 euro cheap shoes, scarves and clothes. Fresh stroopwafel available for 2 euro, naughty chocolate novelty items and fresh roasted nuts. Catch the tram and exit at McDonalds were the street starts.

This market is huge and runs from one end of the street to the other. On either wide of the market are local shops selling all types of shoes and clothes. The market does repeat itself quite a bit but there is loads to see and all buy. The food stalls are fantastic there with lots of choice, make sure... More

If you like local markets, plenty to look at & buy if you feel the need. An easy tram ride to access stops right outside, watch the old ladies & their shoppers get up on tram & you know you're there!

I came here with expectations that we'd find something nice and quaint as a souvenir from Amsterdam, but this market disappointed us. You get the usual flea market stuff here like clothes, household goods and street food (Try the Raw Herring Fish here!) There's nothing extraordinary about the place. The restaurants are good and one can chill out at some... More

There are so many food stalls in this daily street market that it can easily turn into a meal! Lunch here can consist of Indonesian, Surinamese or Dutch specialties, together with cheese, ice cream, and dishes from several other ethnic sources. Lining the street are more food choices, including each of the aforementioned nationalities plus other Asian choices. I recommend... More
