  • Netherlands local market we went to try the local flavors. We haven't been able to eat a chicken they sell bitterballen. fish grilled and roast was good. olive appetizer had a place that sells and it was beautiful. gift and magnet a bit cheaper here. don't look at me when I say cheap amsterdam is expensive.

  • Getaway by Amsterdam, March of 2018... Although lately only critical accommodation and restaurants I decided to talk about this market that I loved! In their street stalls try famous croquettes - bitterballen, French fries, sandwiches-herring - broodje haring, cheese and traditional sweets such as the porffetjes and especially the delicious stroopwafels warm! Very good market for souvenirs. Highly recommended!

  • If your in the neighborhood, fine, go. But there's a lot more to do in De Pijp area which is a hidden jewel away from the more touristy areas.  more »

  • I love this place. This is a long street full of shops selling food, clothing, electronics accessories. I go there to eat waffles. There is this shop which makes fresh waffle. I have never tasted waffle so delicious. Not even in belgium. You can find shops to buy dry fruits, fresh fishes, cheap dresses and shoes, books and what not. A must visit place
  • Great place for cheap souvenirs and some fun food. We really enjoyed it the first time we went to Amsterdam so 2 weeks later we made sure to go back. They have some great variety of stands there. We had fresh herring, fruit drinks, fries with mayo and peanut sauce, stroopwaffles, and more. It was a fun experience to talk with locals and try local flavors.
  • There's many tourists so it can feel a bit busy, but by no means is it a "tourist trap" or anything of the sort. There's a huge variety of food for surprisingly good prices. I come here as it is a great shopping experience. When comparing this to going to an Albert Heijn, there is more variety, much cheaper prices, and just being here is a lot of fun. Be sure to bring anyone visiting the city, it'll make their Amsterdam experience better!
  • This is a great example of a market for locals and not one for the tourist euro. Great everyday products and normal prices. We picked up some lovely food items and the smell was really good. Great market!
  • The atmosphere here sucks you in and makes you feel one with the neighborhood. The various stalls of food and merchandise are so numerous to be able to cater to any craving or need you may have. Be sure to stop by the handmade stroopwafel stand!
