  • The Albert Cuyp used to be a place were immigrants shopped for exotic fruits and vegetables. Nowadays the market is just an ordinary market with products you can get everywhere. Makes for a nice walk....  more »
  • The type of market found in European cities, always a pleasure. Wide variety of food and merchandise. Sampled some large roasted almonds that were delicious. Definitely return someday.  more »

  • Mostly stalls with imported mass produced clothing, bags, shoes etc, a few fish stalls, one true Dutch herring stall, and the best- some fresh flower stalls, mostly towards the end of the week. Some stall holders nice, some really rude.. More interesting shops in the vicinity.
  • This is a good market, but relatively small and standard in its offering. There are a decent number of food stalls on offer, but nothing spectacularly unique or interesting. If you are getting a bite to eat here, not all stalls offer seating, so be prepared to eat on the go. It's a good way to while away an hour or two.
