Open air market for all

Everything from fresh fish to scarves to shoes to tchotchkes. It closes around 6 so we caught the tail end of the market. It is fun to see, and typical to European cities.

I used to live just at the back of it and whenever I go to Amsterdam my visit is not complete with a quick (or leisurely) whizz around this market. Freshly roasted nuts, real proper... More

Nice market which you can cover in about an hour. Some cute stores, especially the pickled herring and the counter which makes the stroopwafel on the spot. Don't miss the fried fish counter with lots of options. You've got also a few cheese and naturally other knick-nacks

This is a typical market, with nothing much to see aside from vegetables, cheap sundries and clothing. There are a few stalls with cheese but you'll do much better seeing the Saturday market near Jordaan if you want for honey or cheese. Avoid the early morning, this place only picks up in the afternoons.

Considering that Amsterdam is quite expensive, you'll find great bargains here.It is a flea market and you'll also found used items at low prices here if you're into that. On the other hand the food stalls here serve great food

I visited for the fresh stroopwafels (sold for 1.5 Euros each) - and I ended up buying a bunch of them to take back home with me.

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.
