“Much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

A big market with lot of old stuff and cool t-shirts. My fiance bought an old cookiejar. I was just fascinating over the t-shirt with the text "Dont drink and drive. Smoke and fly!" Didnt bought it though.

“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.
