Really liked the market despite the lack of vendors in the winter! Still worth the visit tho! Go there for lunch! Make sure to try the raw herring and yummy chicken! Also had the mini pancakes thingy (poffertjes) which I loved and the stroopwaffel!

Easy enough place to get to from the city we got a tram. We went here on our last day in Amsterdam to pick up a few souvenirs, like key rings and ashtrays etc. Best place to get this stuff as the center is rather expensive. They have a good selection of places, but the highlight for me has to... More

We had no idea this was so close to our hotel running across it on the way to get a tram. It was great, we had three or four food items as we ate our way down the block.

Visit only if you have extra time......nothing special as I expected more from Amsterdam's largest outdoor market. Better markets in Asia and other parts of Europe. One long closed off street. Standard t shirt, clothing stuff, and kitschy touristy souvenirs. A lot of the same items for sale from different vendors. Some good food stalls...a variety of cheeses, fresh juices,... More

This is the largest flea market in Amsterdam located in the southeastern part of the city east of Museumplein. It's a city street, several blocks of it, that is closed off for the market. It's a great street market with food vendors should you get hungry walking around looking at all the booths. It's also one of those places to... More

There are plenty of typical food, souvenirs and other items that are very interesting. A specific store called Passione sells extremely soft jumpers that are also very warm, I strongly recommend you take a look. They have jumpers in every colour and every style. Since it is an open space, be careful with the cold or if it will rain... 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.
