Absolute waste of time. Mostly tourist rubbish and tack to buy. All the reviews say the bulbs are also not as stated. Full of rude tourists with no sense of direction and getting completely in your way without a care in the world. Only two stalls sell actually flowers & one of them has a no photo rule, seriously??, do... More

Only 1 row of stalls mostly sell bulbs. A few also sell cut flowers or souvenir. Not worth going unless you are looking for bulbs. However, having read a review mentioning the scam about bulbs not what was marketed, should flower lovers buy bulbs from here?

There were many stalls alongside the canal selling flower products and other souvenirs to the visitors. There were many cafes and eating houses alongside the pathway and the place was really congested with crowds of tourists. Not a genuine "flower market" as one supposed to be but worth to visit to experience the noisy environment around the area.

I wouldn't bother going here unless you happened upon it. Lots of bulbs but you can buy them from many places, the same souvenirs you find anywhere.
