Great market

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

On my recent visit there, I found that half the stalls was more flea market than a traditional market in that they sold products like clothing, accessories, household items, souvenirs, etc. The product stalls selection was very ho hum and the souvenir stalls all sell very similar items (postcards, magnets, etc). I found souvenir shops elsewhere in Amsterdam to be... More

This market is average, not amazing but not awful either. Varied mix of stalls with everything from fresh fruit to clothes to tourist tat. The area around the market has some nice looking cafes and bars. The area reminded me a little of portobello market in London but on a much smaller scale.

Local market in De Pijp featuring local vendors of all types including food, clothing and other goods. Recommend walking through just to get a feel for a local market. Located in a cool neighborhood too.

All the guide books seemed to rave about the Albert Cuyp market so we included a traverse of it on our walk to the museumplein. I must admit to being somewhat disappointed: for me, it was just another market offering the usual range goods at not so competitive prices. Worse still, there was not much in the way of coffee/food... More

The market was interesting but the highlights were the fresh made stroopwafels and the birkenstock store (in America, birkenstocks are much more expensive!). Make sure to ask any of the vendors where you can buy stroopwafels where they make it in front of you- most of them know and can point you in the right direction. Only 1.50 euro for... 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.
