Albert Cuyp Market Reviews
If you haven't explored this market then you are wasting your time being wasted in Amsterdam. This is an adventure which will take about 2 or more hours from your day. I advise that you start early... more »
The market is one of the most amazing places I went to while in Amsterdam. There was so many things to shop for and so many types of food to eat. A must try is the waffles. 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.
