Great market like the kind you see all over Europe but this is the place to get the best stroopwaffel! There is a stand that sells them fresh both plain or with chocolate - I recommend both! So much better than out of a packet. Essential eating!

I was staying in Central Amsterdam (Dam Square) and although the market is quiet far it is worth the walk. You pass through so many of the tourist attraction that the walk there was just as exciting as the market itself.

If you want to try out the authentic Dutch street food, this is the place to go. We tried the freshly made original stroopwafels, profiteroles, fries in a cone, BBQ chicken wings. They have Vietnam food etc too.

We walked through the Albert Cuyp Market and loved it! This was a much more authentic market filled with locals and great sites, smells and shops. We tried the freshly made poffertjes which are like little pillowy soft pancakes. We shared a large for 4 euros. We also shared a freshly made stroop waffle for 1.50. This was crispy, warm,... More

It's the oldest market in Amsterdam, so we were expecting something better than average. It wasn't. It was just like the market back home. OK to wander through and pass an hour.

Easy to take the public transportation here. The market is huge with lots of food and unique things to look at. Many of the locals shop here and there are some good deals! Most of the stalls are cash only. Worth a visit if your in the area!

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.
