It is a pity that most markets across the world have become Chinese depots. But if you are going to walk the streets of Amsterdam, you may as well walk through this one too. Here and there we found good enough Dutch stalls with all the normal touristy things. We found amazing warm 'wafels' here.

We went for a walk here on a Saturday afternoon and thought it was fun. There are lots of stalls selling food and drink - waffles, chips, smoothies, cakes, cheese...so much good food! The other stalls sold clothes, jewellery and house stuff. Around the market are lots of side streets with nice bars (and these bars are way cheaper than... More

This market is basically a dirty looking lane of stalls selling vegetables and fruit, and other cheap made in China miscellaneous items. The produce is nothing like what you would find in a good supermarket like Marqt or Hema. It's rather poor quality and unappealing. If you are on an extremely low budget, I think even Lidl would have more... More

In this case, they get to watch the vendors setting up or drinking their coffee. Don't go until at least mid-morning (later is better), but do go. There's plenty of made in Asia junk available, but also some interesting arts and crafts, lots of beautiful produce, tasty snacks, and good deals on cheese. The funky neighborhood is interesting as well.

That's actually a street, a pretty long one, full of all the things you can imagine or not :) . Clothes, sweets, meat, cheese, jewels, sea fruits, useful and useless things, as I said, all that you can imagine... The street ends close to the museum square (museumplein) so when you are done with the market, you can enrich your... More

I love markets so I will not say that Amsterdam has amazing markets compared to Spain, Israel, and other places, but this one is better than the other ones I went to. The market has a few veggie and fruit stands with cheap fresh juices which are nice, but there is a new little sandwich shop in the middle of... More

If your time allows, this is an interesting little place. Lunch is available. Only go if you have lots of time as it is mostly local fruits and vegetables type of stuff. No touristy stuff at all.

Don't know why it is famous for the tourists. Every time you're in the tram number 16 or 24, you will hear "the next stop is the famous market Albert Cuyp market". It is one of the local markets, on the Albert Cuyp street that open from 10.00 am to 05.00 pm and in the evening it is just a... More

Not worth the 30 minute walk, unless you want cheap clothes and other tat. Were expecting something a little more authentic, but still interesting nonetheless.
