“Nice market)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Amsterdam is the city of small markets for me - I saw at least 7 of them during 3 days! This market is in the centre (next to Red Light District) - if You are fond of pretty things it would be interesting to buy something there).

“Good little market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Visited the market on both Saturday and Sunday. Appeared to be far more stalls on Sunday and certainlty worth a short visit as it is very close to the centre of the city. The square is also surrounded by a good selection of cafes and bars with a lot of outside seating - an excellent spot for breakfast or a drink and a spot of people watching

“Interesting Market Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The open market place was bustling with people when i reached in mid day. The vendors were all hustling and eagerly talking to locals and tourists about their goods and they seems happy to speak to anyone as long you are near their stalls. The Dutch people are some of the friendliest people I've met in Europe and they definitely make you feel welcome.

“Great Hangout Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Very lively centre for locals to gather. Usually have open markets there, lots of great spots to have coffee or beer and just watch everything going on.
We were there for Aprilfeest and saw/experienced the rides and for/beer tents with live music.
