The area
Neighborhood: De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.

    A diverse array of products and cultures being represented!
    This street market seemed to have just about everything. Food, decor, clothing, accessories, you name it! A lot of cultures are represented too. Italian, Turkish, Mexican, Indonesian, Filipino, and of course the good ol Dutch! It also stretches pretty long and so it took a while for us to browse through the stalls and taste out the food as well. I loved the Stroopwaffels in the market. Very well recommended!

    A Fun Experience
    Worth the visit. We enjoyed seeing all the food stalls, but the clothes, etc. were your typical touristy, kitschy fare. We went on a Saturday and a Thursday. Saturday was far busier, but there was more available to see. We had taken cash out of an ATM before arriving at the market assuming we needed it; however, most stalls are cashless.

    Very nice walk. Go there on an empty stomach
    There are lots of food stalls at reasonable prices. It is a long street with stalls along both sides selling food, fruits, clothes, housewares, etc. nice to visit for an hour. Please note that it closes at 5 pm daily and it is not open on Sunday.

    Something for everyone
    I came to the market on a Friday afternoon after visiting the Van Gogh museum. It’s only a 10-15 minute walk from there so great to group these together in the same day. There are about 3 blocks of stalls to walk down and there’s something for everyone - different kinds of Dutch foods, Mexican tacos, Asian foods and various vendors selling anything you could possibly want from seafood to flowers to souvenirs. I tried bitterballen, fries with Mayo, poffertjes. I got 2 pairs of earrings and a windmill figurine as a gift for a family member. The prices were reasonable and I walked away a happy (and full) camper!

    Worth a visit
    Worthwhile street market. Lots of vendors of all sorts: crafts and food and household items and souvenirs. Good values to be had. Note that it says it opens at 9:00 but many vendors are not set up until significantly later. Bring your appetite!

    Everything you need from a market, with plenty to eat and drink in surrounding streets.
    This market is huge extending for several blocks. You could pretty much set your whole house up, cloth the whole family and eat a different meal each day for weeks. Local fruit, veg, flowers, tourist tat and food delicacies. Music, drink and much more.

    Interesting market
    Albert Cuypmarkt is a huge market for both locals and tourists. The long row of shops and stalls offers everything from food, fresh produces to handicrafts. Despite of the almost omnipresent tourists, goods are still cheaper than those in the city center. Make sure you arrive here hungry; a plethora of eateries will fill you up.

    Good prices, nice location, a ton of options to choose from
    Nice location near the centre, we were there two times in one week. The shops are nice with a lot of flowers and souveniers to choose from, but most of the shops offer the same stuff at a bit different prices. I have to add that if you need any souveniers, flowers or just smoking accessories, they have it all. You can also stop there for the dutch pancakes or cheese if you like. Just mind that it can get very busy.

    Good outside market with a few food options and market stalls
    We came here for a walk around, it was a raining day and unfortunately there isn’t really anywhere you can get undercover. The market stalls all have covers but they are limited and when it’s pouring down with rain you do get wet. We came on a Monday and didn’t find there was tonnes of options most of the stalls sold similar stuff. We went to a stroop wafels stall and had both an original and a dipped chocolate one if you are there you have to try both as they are so good and made fresh in front of you cost about €3 - €4 each. We also tried bennys chicken which was good they have a few different options on offer and the value for money is good. Worth a visit if your in the area.

    Enjoyable experience
    This market offered a really good range of cheap, excellent street food and lots of items to buy, including souvenirs. There are also a number of permanent food and beverage outlets with outdoor seating amongst it all. A vibrant atmosphere. Well worth a visit and not far from some of the big tourist sights.

We ate the best stroopwaffles in the city from a guy that runs the family business and looking a bit like Benedict Cumberbatch. We didn´t dare asking for a picture but you can check yourself. Somewhere on a corner we entered another family business where we tried the raw herring with chopped raw onions and gherkins. My husband tried the Kibbeling. We took away some tuna and fish salad (best I have ever eaten in any restaurant I have ever been) Everybody was smiling and super friendly.
The market is so-so.... couldn´t find anything interesting to buy, many things are coming from China, cheap looking... It worth going for eating as there are many places to chose from.

During the recent lockdown, all the shops were shut, as a result by default, the open air markets became the place to be, especially this one, everything was in operation.

We find everything is reasonably priced and there is always a bargain to be had, fro veges to cloths, one stall had hot wine for one euro, excellent value. one of our faves is the chicken shop the cooked satay chicken is to die for. Also the guy that does spring rolls, they taste amazing with sweet chilli sauce.

This is a must place to visit, especially if you are staying in a self catering apartment.

This is not a place to wander about and experience anything particular to the region or anything very interesting. During our trip my husband's backpack malfunctioned and we found the perfect small day pack for him at this market. That was just luck, I can't recommend it for anything other than a Stroop waffle or maybe a snack.

Market has a variety of hot food, produce, flowers, household items and souvenirs. This is a great place to sample some of Amsterdam’s best street food. Souvenirs tend to be cheaper than other tourist traps.

If you haven't explored this market then you are wasting your time being wasted in Amsterdam. This is an adventure which will take about 2 or more hours from your day. I advise that you start early around 10 am. It is great for walking and exploring, there is a tram that gets there, so if you are using your unlimited pass then go to this market... Wear comfortable shoes, keep an umbrella handy as well you never know. I had a great day, it was sunny and humid, and I think without rain in Amsterdam was a great way to explore this market. I had some great lemonades, pancakes, waffles, and much much much more. I highly recommend this activity if you are visiting Amsterdam. I would love to go back and explore more again. Enjoy Amsterdam and the market...It is a good activity with children as well.
