There is nothing as special there as you can not miss, but once there, try the hot stroopwaffle, the french fries with mayonese, the fresh fruit juice and, last but not least, the fresh herring (you can order it in the bread, with onins also).

It's very interesting place to get to know Netherlands in general. Local food & snack. Fresh vegetable, seafood, bakery and more. I like freshly bake stroopwafel there very much. The market is short walk from Heineiken experience. A must visit when in Amsterdam

The market is great for fresh food at good prices although, personally, I would not go there to buy anything else. Aside from the market itself, there's an *excellent* spice shop (peperbol), an artisan french butcher, a nice pet shop (I always buy my dog a treat or two when I'm there), and some great places to grab something to...

While many farmers' markets have appeared in towns across the UK over the past decade, Albert Cuypmarkt is an example of a food-focused market that has sustained business for over a hundred years. It's a good place to come if you want to try traditional Dutch food, as you're guaranteed good cheese, fish, baked goods, etc. Also, tasty Flemish frites,... More

I have to agree with everyone who gave one or two stars for this over hyped place. There are about three food stalls with cheap food, vegetables, cheese, a couple of Surinamese stores where one can buy decent Rotis and different kind of vegetables. But more than 90%of the stalls are selling cheap, worthless Asian stuff that are all bound... More

This was a fun experience: lot of people, lots of stalls, and lots of things for sale: oilcloth to dresses, shoes to cheese, herring to waffles. Just walking and wandering was an experience, even if you didn't make any purchases.

This is a long market where you can buy local produce. Nothing special jumped out for me but give it a try if you're looking for good cheeses or similar

The sun was out on a nice day, so a couple of hours strolling between the stalls was fairly enjoyable with plenty going on. My wife haggled for a small leather bag she saw and I bought some fruit. Paid prices for those items were reasonable although I had to swap a few of the figs. These days though it... More

The market itself was good, but mostly all new inexpensive merchandise. Especially clothing. You can get good bargains such as a new extra large canvas luggage bag with wheels for only 30 Euros; a nice leather wallet for 8.50; etc. I went here after spending a few hours at the Rijksmuseum to get a respite outdoors. It's only a 10... More
