WTF? Where’s the food? Well, at the Foodhallen of course.

Inspired by indoor markets like the ‘Torvehallerne’ in Copenhagen, ‘Mercado de San Miguel’ in Madrid and ‘Borough Market’ in London, the Foodhallen opened its doors in 2014 as the Dutch equivalent of these havens of flavour. A new trend took off in Amsterdam, leading to the opening of indoor markets across the country. But The Foodhallen wasn’t a fleeting trend; it became a prime pit stop for local food lovers and those foodies on a city trip.

The Foodhallen is the home of 21 food stands and 4 bars. City dwellers wander through the former tram depot, devouring a fresh hand roll, taco or Bao bun. Tourists discover Dutch culinary heritage with some ‘bitterballen’ and a glass of beer. While bloody delicious burgers sizzle on the grill, a bartender mixes a creative G&T with mango and red pepper, and the smell of traditional Indian street food drifts through the space. Whatever you may choose, all dishes come with a buzzing vibe on the side.

Food stands are guaranteed open for service until 20.00 during the week and 21.00 in the weekend, but are free to extend service when the crowd just doesn’t want to leave. Who could blame them?

The building of the Foodhallen features a large parking lot and bike storage. The food market is also easily accessible by public transport (tram stops Bilderdijkstraat, Kinkerstraat or Ten Katemarkt) as well as by bike.

  • Best burger in town! stumbled into the Butcher and it was very good, pizza was fine, amazing Gin and Tonic bar, recommend Mumbasa pink gin.  more »
  • Was recommended this place by friends ahead of our Amsterdam trip and staying in hotel next door it would have been rude not to visit. Over 3-days we were there three times for either drinks and snack...  more »

  • Wide variety of foods. All delicious and all wrapped in an interior that keeps you there. Try to go when it's less crowded. It got really hot when we were there and we really had to pull out our detective suits for a place to sit. If you're in Amsterdam and you like food (and who doesn't) you should really pay Foodhallen a visit! Your taste buds will thank you!
  • Fantastic place, very VERY busy. You will have to circle for a while to get a seat, if you are a large party this could take a long time. Once you are seated though, the quality and choice of food is amazing. Something for everyone, with great fresh food cooked to order all around. My best meal during my week stay.
