This was very near to our hotel, so we found it by chance on our first day in Amsterdam.
This place personifies the city with tulips, clogs and delft ware for sale. Opposite the flower markets are shops selling cheeses and dope, so this is a great place to visit, to soak up the atmosphere of Amsterdam.
We went back a couple more times to this bustling, lively flower market.

I wasn't planning to go hear, but stumbled upon it when going to the Christmas store (on the same street). The floating flower market is rich in flower seeds and bulbs more than actual flowers, and dozens of shops that sold souvenirs as well. We were planning to get souvenirs elsewhere, but ended up coming back the next day to pick up a few trinkets, as this was the cheapest place to get them with the greatest variety. Enjoyed it.

It is a short street with 30 vendors selling exactly the same thing.
Close to Dam and Free of charge anyway so it is ok to have a look.
Don't expect too much

The Amsterdam flower market covers a full block along the ring canal defining the central part of the city. Here you will find all manner of fantastic plants, bulbs, and even cannabis seeds (which if you are inclined to buy should probably forgo since I'm sure they are banned in many jurisdictions you might be passing through). As you wander past all the flower shops, also look for the cheese shops, which have large selections of Dutch cheese and cheerfully hand out samples.

Not what I expected at all. I think I imagined it more like the tulip fields but it was just a garden centre with major building work going on around it.
