I love markets, but not that kind. We go nearly to the end to fine the fresh food, fruits and fish. Until this long trip we saw only Chinese clothes - like in Chinese markets... read more

Albert Cuyp Market is fun to wander and explore, but it's not a "must" if you have limited time. There are many stalls with food, fruits, etc. and some - for lack of a better work - junk; delicious stroopwaffles, though.

When we find the nice part of the market, we buy fresh food, vegetable and some fruit for good price. I am not at home... More

If you would spend only 1-3 day(s) in Amsterdam, just skip this market !!! Amsterdam is a very wonderful city where many interesting places to see and visit. This market is not so interesting;just average, or below, that I would suggest. There're some interesting food stalls, which're Benny's chicken : tasty flavoured chicken woth not high price and of course... More

My friend (architect) was in Amsterdam before, but this time he came with his wife and three children. And there was one thing he really wanted to show them for sure and that was The Albert Cuyp Market. They spent a good two hours buying there little gifts for their friends at home for prices they could not believe. One... More

The Albert Cuyp Markt was by far one of the best markets we have visited abroad. We went back for a second visit and still found amazing food, interesting gift shops and wonderfully welcoming shopkeepers we missed the first time through. The Stroopwaffel shop alone is worth the visit. This is a do not miss!

While there is not huge variation in products (sunglasses, clothes, fruit, humus) it is actually a great market and has the oldest stroopwaffle stand in Amsterdam (they say)

This market is not open late. Make sure you get to the market early before vendors start packing up. Street food is very good here; you don't want to come here after you've eaten. Also just try the various snacks, don't fill up on one stall because you will regret! The prices on souvenirs here can be substantially cheaper than... 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.
