It has all sorts of things: vegetables, fruits, fish, bags, clothes and pastry. If you have a place to cook, you can get the freshest items here but beware that it closes at 5pm. If you want to buy a fish and have it cleaned, you have to be there at 4:30pm the latest.

We were there not for shopping but really for the local eats - herrings, stroopwafels, artisan breads. Cheeses can be hit and miss depending on whether you are in the know for good value cheeses. Forget about the clothes and junky stuff because they are really expensive and not worth it.

This is the kind of street market that I love. All kinds of options, from fresh juices to Chinese clothes. However, the market is amazing to buy the old Dutch cheese, different pickles and waffles. It's near from Heineken experience (around 10min walking). So, it's a good place to get some snacks and then go enjoy the arts of brewery.

Lots of different stalls to chose from. ' Liked' You are not hassled to buy anything. Prices are very reasonable and we bought extra large towels, 3 for 1O euros. Also bought a doll for my grand daughters 1st birthday for 12 Euros. What great deals they were. No Dislikes at all.

The Albert Cuyp market is the largest market street of Holland. From fruits and vegetables till the famous dutch pasteries like "poffertjes" and "stroopwafels". Typical Dutch "haring" fish and a variety of meat. Furthermore, jewelry, clothes and accesoires. You name it, a must see place to visit for a tourist from abroad !

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.
