Walking around 900m of markets was a mixed experience, apart from the stroopwafels and poffertjies stalls which were excellent, as well as the amazing variety of fresh fruit, everything else was pretty disappointing. The clothes on offer were cheap, but low-quality imports. Spend time instead wandering the streets parallel to Albert cuyp, where more interesting and unique art pieces and... More

Do not expect a "real" street market. I you take away the food stalls (about 20%) only about 1 in 10 of the rest are real market stalls, The rest approx. 70% are nothing more than the shops along the street spreading out into the road. Very disappointing. Do not expect any bargains either as the shop stalls are charging... More

If staying in self catering and plan to cook you might want to visit the market at beginning of your stay to stock up on fresh produce. Plenty of variety of souvenirs, clothes etc. If you like markets then this is the place to go

I ate here the best stroopwafels in Amsterdam. I also loved the diversity in cheese, fish and other international cuisines. I recommend seeing this, especially because it's pretty close to the center - we walked to this market and back.

Interesting little market, with tons of food stands and little shops. Bit like a flea market but with new stuff :-). Get the waffles they are amazing!

I believe we can get close to a country when you visit the local markets, speciaaly the big ones, where you can spend half a day walking, barganing, eating or just looking the interesting thing they have to offer. Albert Cuyp Market is an authentic example. Go there and have some delicious fresh stroopwaffels or poffertjes, try some dutch cheese... More

Enjoyed the myriad of stalls offering everything from Herring to fishnet stockings! Only a few minutes' walk from the Rijksmuseum. Worth a stroll through - very colourful, good prices...
