Best place to try typical food!

The food available is very very nice... Looked like a flea market at some parts which may appeal to some people.

The market is really famous and opened everyday. Few vegetables and fruits and mostly clothes. Not the best one for shopping. I have seen better ones.

We did not make it to the market until the last day and wish we would have moved it up on the agenda! It was a great place to shop!

In my opinion the best food in Amsterdam is here. Herring, fish n chips, barbecue, stroopwaffel, snacks and candy, broodje ball.. It's best place to eat. A great place to shop and the people are very friendly. You wont have to spend too long there, but it's a great place to kill time.

During our weekend visit to Amsterdam my girlfriend and I ate breakfast and lunch here on a couple of occasions due to its close vicinity to our hotel and other attractions (Heineken, Van Gogh). We were not disappointed! A wonderful open market, selling all kinds of items, there was some lovely food items to be had - and some presents... More

I was hoping for a quirky market with interesting stalls but I was disappointed to walk down a regular street market that can be seen in any UK town; food, cheap clothes, luggage etc. Not the exciting experience that I was looking forward to. It's not the flea market that I had hoped for.

Its our 2nd time there and when the 1st time was disappointing, I wanted to give it a 2nd chance. Nothing special, very day to day clothing's, not attractive at all. Long street and you feel you already been at this point before. All looks the same. I have no idea why it got famous. Better ways to spend time... More

Great market for locals, and plenty stalls for souvenirs. Prices of items I was interested in buying weren't much different to the shops I had seen earlier at the Bloemenmarkt (which is a nice place to visit) If you have time then go and buy a waffle or some other local delicacy, if not don't worry, you haven't missed anything.

I would say this is a good place to spend a few hours if you have extra time in Amsterdam. If you have very limited time, there are other "must see and must do" such as Anne Frank or museums or canal boat ride rather than here. Why here? Because you will find prices much less than around touristy area... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
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.
