This market actually is a street. Many stands for clothing, food and snacks with bars and restaurants at its two side. I think it is just like any other open markets in Europe. Nothing spectacular but still worth going if you want to see how the locals live.

Looking for a freshly made cheese or fish? Or wanna shop some new clothes and scarf? Or maybe needs shampoo, tooth paste or soap? Find everything here. Shoes, flowers, foods, drinks, watch with low price. Dont expect luxury quality. Worth to walk by and see plus enjoying the crowd.

It's a normal market, that you have in every town in the Netherlands. Vegetables, fruit, fish, some sweets, bags, clothing, that kind of things.

Albert Cuyp Market is worth a quick visit in Amsterdam. It is in a cool area to walk around for a bit and a great place to get some Dutch souvenirs at affordable prices. Be sure to check out one of the nearby restaurants or a street food vendor.

If you are the type of tourist that crave for traditional approach, then this market should be on your list. It is a street market that opens every day (I think). Here you can find various thibgs, from foods, flowers, clothes, drinks, cheese, stroopwafels, poffertjes, souvenirs, even electronic equipments at low price. Don't believe it? Try it yourself.

There are lots of choices to buy some food or some clothes. Also you can find the souvenir shops in here. The most interest thing is we saw very big birds at the street just it is closing especially around the fish stands. If you are close here you can pass through it

We went to the market twice during our trip for the great food. Family owned stroopwafel stall, delicious chicken, fresh and tasty fries. Plus, lots of cheese stalls, nut stalls, candy, waffles, you name it! And all very reasonably priced. The shopping in general isn't so great, very touristy, cheap goods. But absolutely worth the trip for the food and... More

Rented bicycles for the day and headed here prior to going to Vondelpark for a picnic We picked up some cheese, fruit, bread and dessert. Everything we purchased was great...especially the cheese. There was lots of food items to choose from. The market also sold handbags, luggage, clothes and other miscellaneous goods.

The market is okey for flowers, cheese and vegetables but most of the other stuff is cheap replica stuff. I was hoping for authentic homemade things but found none of this. In other words probably a good place for locals but not so much for tourist since most of us probably won't do much flowers and vegetable shopping. There is... More

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.
