I came here on a Monday morning just before lunch, so maybe I came on the wrong day or something... there weren't that many visitors for starters, but the market was about 60% cheap household goods and the other 40% was food. If I lived in Amsterdam around this area, I would come here to buy fresh produce. The fish... More

Good selection of touristy and household stuff. Plenty of cheap (by Europe standards) street food and cafes. Lively and bustling with people and bargain hunters. Not very big though.

I was expecting a huge, vibrant street market with a good atmosphere as it is touted as the biggest street market in Amsterdam.

A fabulous local market with local shops and cafes. A great atmosphere with very few tourists. The street is a short tram ride from Damm Square and en-route to the Museums.

This market will not disappoint. There is anything you could ever want in a street market. Produce, fish, meat, cheese, quality clothing, candy, and a widddde assortment of street food. Mini-pancakes, churros, and stroopwaffles make each step of the market a plethora of wonderful smells. The only reason I did not rate it 5 out of 5 is it still... More

Nice street market. Relatively cheap. We bought pineapples for 0.5 euro per piece. We also bought gloves for 2 euros. And the best fries in Amsterdam.

One of those places that has everything for tourists and ranging from cheap keyrings to bikes. Amazing stroopwaffell stand and great place for chicken satay, just great for a walk after the Rijkmuseum.

Just outside the centre of amsterdam, this was a fun market to check out. I was lucky it was a 5 min walk from the hostel I was staying at. Worth dropping by!
