Always wonder through the flower market when I am in Amstedam. Don't miss the Christmas shop. Even though the prices are GOOD, it isn't the cheapest place in town to buy flowers. There are flower stalls in lots of places. There is also a plant market every Monday on the square where the Prinsengracht meets the Reguliersgracht.

We went to the flowermarket and expected to see only flowers. But there was much more to see. Besides fresh flowers there were plants and all kinds of herbs, Cactusses, orchids and many other plants I don't know. A must buy for everybody are bulbs. You can buy there bulbs in all sizes and colors. Most shops offered prepacked bulbs but there was one shop that had lots of loose bulbs.

Some flowershops are more like souvenirshops now. The locals that guided us around told us not to buy bulbs at those souvenir stalls because of poor quality.

The flowermarket (Bloemenmarkt) is a very nice attraction where you easily can spent some time.
