There were so many different types of spots in the marketplace and on the outskirts. It's not all tourist items. Some of the fabric and furniture stores really caught my eye. Great food all around! Don't miss the French fries!

The market is average but is worth going to especially to get a homemade stroopwafels. They were the best i have ever eaten, I would go back to the the market just for the stroopwafels.

The Albert Cuyp Market was a huge disappointment for us, with the exception of the food stalls we felt it was filled with cheap tacky goods. Nothing of any real interest and nothing that I would wish to take home as a momento of Amsterdam. Walked back past the shops behind the stalls, hoping for more....we were told a small... More

I have been to this street food market 3 separate times and have loved it on each visit. Though it is a little out of the centre (and you need to take a tram) it is absolutely worth a visit. You can try many of the local specialities like bitterballen, stroopwaffel and poffertjes. You can even find the original stroopwaffel... More

Lots of outdoor stalls - from food to trinkets. Not an experience I was looking for, but maybe attractive to others.

This street of market sells everything from food and beverage to clothes and souvenirs. It's a nice place to walk through. Try the verse haring or fresh herring, which is raw salted herring served with onions and pickles.

We had long heard about the "largest market in Europe" and needed to check it out! We came on a Monday which was nice because it was a fair amount of locals purchasing their produce and flowers, and a moderate amount of tourists so that it did not feel too crowded. I highly suggest getting the delicious stroopwaffel (with chocolate!!)... More

Multiple visits over a few years I have eaten Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Loempia, Fish and Chips, Herring Broodje, Chicken Broodje at the Albert Cuyp Markt. Lots of fresh fruit juice and cheese (try the goats cheese) for sale.

I'd heard a lot about this market and really wanted to check it out. As a traveller, I was a little underwhelmed on the shopping front. Most of the goods on sale were cheap, imported things. I was hoping for more handcrafted pieces or secondhand/antique goods. On the upside, the food was amazing! I wandered back and forth trying different... More

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.
