We loved this market, the food you can only find there, we ate a delicious sea food sampler, the famous stroopwaffles, the little pancakes. Unfortunately it is full of china stuff like phone cases and others that are not typical from Amsterdam but you can find anything you want there. A must go!

Vendors sell everything from fruit, vegetables,flowers. cheese, fish and spices to clothes, cosmetics,bedding, seasonal items and of course bikes. The prices are among the cheapest in Amsterdam. The market gets... More

I made a huge mistake eating a big breakfast right before I went to this market, because it's filled with delicious cheese, herring, oliebollen, fruit, waffles, pancakes, fries, and every other delicious treat you can imagine! There are also tons of souvenirs (clogs, windmills, etc.), as well as flowers, clothes, and random markety things like budget cosmetics and spices. It... More

I love markets and the Albert Cuyp is one of them. It's diverse, lively and very affordable. Great food stalls that sell typical Dutch food such as "poffertjes" the fluffy piping hot quarter size pancake covered with butter and powdered sugar and the famous "stroop wafels".Halfway the market I discovered a small stall with a friendly owner that sells tasty...

This a great general market in Amsterdam It is open every day except Sunday. You can walk in ten minutes from the Rijksmuseum or get a train or tram from Centraal station. There are stalls selling flowers, food ,clothes, chocolates even bikes. Well worth a visit.

... but wouldn't go far out of my way to visit. Cheap, fast food in abundance though wasn't too sure about the quality of some of the other wares on sale. Not quite sure why the Dutch call it the "world-famous" Albert Cuyp market. More of a marketing ploy than reality.

Staying in De Pijp

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.
