If you are tired of the usual coach tours and the crowds in the Squares, this is a place to hang out at. Mainly clothes, food etc., but more to just experience a flea market. Definitely worth a couple of hours.

I do love open-air markets, and because we were staying in an apartment with a kitchen, we could purchase fresh produce and cheese and spices for dinner. I purchased a big bouquet of tulips, of a variety we do not see at home, to decorate the apartment, reluctantly leaving them behind when we had to move on. The housewares and... More

Not too touristic, good to visit. BUT the man selling chips at the eastern end of the road with the large plastic model of chips in a cone, is one of THE most unpleasant and rudest people ive ever come across. Do not support him!!

Our hotel recommended our visit to the daily marketplace for Amsterdam citizens - it was a neat slice of everyday life. Food, fabrics, clothes and flowers were plentiful for the four blocks or so that is the marketplace. We enjoyed strolling with tourists and locals alike to sample a piece of their lives.

Very nice street to walk along during the morning. There are quite a number of stalls selling fruit juices, cheese, herring fish and other snacks like poffertjes and stroopwaffles. Side street offers cafes with cosy tables inside or seats along the small roads to people-watch along with a hot chocolate and pastries. Clothing and accessory stalls there also offer interesting...

A good place to have some street food, like fries, fish sandwich, cheese, salad. There are mainly clothes and other cheap stuff sold in this market, but it's worth walking through.

Albert Cuyp is a fascinating street market with something for just about everyone. First things first, though - start with one of Wally's Waffles. They are stunningly good. There's a wide selection but my favourite is the delicious cherry and chocolate. The waffles are cooked fresh for you at the stall, lovely and crispy and succulent. Wally is usually at... More

This market is a must visit place in Amsterdam. There are tonnes of stalls here to look at. You can get fresh produce, cooked food, stroopwaffles, cheeses... Almost anything Dutch is available here. The market is opened from Mondays to Saturdays. It's more quiet on weekdays so do come on weekends because some stalls only open on Fridays and Saturdays.
