Are you looking for a good deal while you’re in Amsterdam? In this case, here are the best markets where to go:
1- Albert Cuyp Market
Number One of the list is the Albert Cuyp market, located in the De Pijp district. It is the largest outdoor market in Europe. You can find everything you want, from fruit and exotic fish to books and appliances. Sellers are known for their typical Amsterdammers humor, which you’ll absolutely witness if you’re there. The market is open every day except Sundays.
The best flea market in Amsterdam is located behind the Stopera, the building hosts the town hall and the opera of Amsterdam. The Waterlooplein, or the Waterloo Square, is a true flea market with its 33 old towers, old photos, its vintage thrift and his golden opportunities and curiosities of all kinds. The market is open every day except Sundays.
3- The Bloemenmarkt
The famous Bloemenmarkt occupies a portion of the Singel Canal. All the flowers and plants are sold aboard barges. These fresh flowers came directly from the local growers. We rarely leave the market without a few tulip bulbs to plant at home, or without a little souvenir. The market is open every day.
The Noordermarkt is a neighborhood market, specifically the Jordaan district. It mixes fleas, organic and natural products. You will face a very friendly atmosphere. It is only open on Mondays and Saturdays.
The Zwarte Markt is the largest covered market in Europe. It was originally an illegal market, hence its name in dutch. You’re find absolutely everything from furniture to household appliances, fashion and cosmetics. The oriental atmosphere gives you the impression of having made a trip to the Middle East.
The market is located just outside Amsterdam in the city of Beverwijk. It can be reached by boat from the jetty behind the Central Station of Amsterdam. The market is open every day.
6- The Koningsdag
On April 26 (The King Anniversary) , the flea market stalls invade the country. The most popular of them is held in the Amsterdam Vondelpark. If you are in Amsterdam on that day, you should take a part of the festivity.
