“You never know what you will find”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

We went with no expectations but were surprised with what we found. 4 pairs of Dr Marten shoes at a steal! I guess there is always an element of surprise when visiting markets.

“Best place to shop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This has to be one of my favorite places in Amsterdam. Each stall sells so many different things and is the best place to go for vintage clothes. You could pick up anything here from a Ralph Lauren jacket for £10 to original dutch milk maid attire, would recommend for any one interested in finding statement pieces for their wardrobe as most stalls are also incredibly cheap.

“Waterlooplein Street Market Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Fun gifts and vendors of new and antique items. Watch them pack if you request it as some will cheat you. I paid for three hand-painted tiles and found two when I got home.

“Street Market running for over 100 years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is another street market now running for more than 100 years. It's really interesting to see what's on offer in the stalls, since some of it is just junk but other items are truly for collectors only. Spend some time here--it doesn't take very long to walk through. A good place to buy souvenirs that's not nearly as expensive as some other similar nearby souvenir stands.
