“Cute and Fun flea market!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Great to enjoy in combination with the Jewish Museum and Synagogue. The flea market is quite typical of Europe but truly fun. Remember: someone else's junk may be your gold! New stuff too to sort through.

“Near the Rembrandt House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a lovely flea market where residents offer souvenirs and clothing and food and bicycle parts. Take some time after you see the Rembrandt House and make a purchase of jewelry or a cup and saucer. Have fun

“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.
