A great little street market- plenty of food vendors, people selling all kinds of things that you don't need and artists offering their work. It's not a giant market, but definitely worth a stroll through- don't miss the actual stores on the sides as well!

This is the place to visit if you want to try yummy local street food. Beside the food, there are many stores selling bags, shoes, cloths and etc. if you lucky you can find good brand shoes in very good discounts. Just look carefully.

Curious when reading the reviews on Tripadvisor about this traditional market, I stepped to visit this place. The location is still in down town only 30 minutes by tram from the Central Station. It was still early and the weather was cold, when I arrived at this traditional market. Only a few visitors came and the sellers were all busy... More

Visited the Albert Cuyp Market whilst in Amsterdam for a few days - was an interesting place to have a walk through. We didn't notice anything interesting to buy as tourists there but living in Amsterdam I can see how this place would be wonderful for a bargain! What we did enjoy however was the food offered - we bought... More

Masses and masses of stalls, selling everything you could think of, food, clothing, Knick-knacks, but above all...tat. A kitsch experience but definitely whiles away the time and there's always somewhere to sit and enjoy a coffee or a beer.

One of the best street markets in Amsterdam, everything is found there from food, juices, deserts, souvenirs, bags, accessories, ... etc. We spebt 4 hours there and it felt like half an hour, we even went there on more time before our flight back home. A must do whenever u r in Amsterdam.

Good market. Visited due to trip advisor and a local suggesting this was a better one to visit. General market tat... however the food was great. Waffles amazing (blue and white stall in the middle lovely!), great bakers down here (bread, croissants, foccia's etc) and a fraction of the price from the main streets, herring, fresh fish (if I'd have...

Open air markets are a great way to get "local" things at a great price. For example, forget underwear? Bought 3 pair of great Amsterdam stretch boxer type shorts for 5 Euro (in US were 3/$24). Great for scarves, pants, sweatshirts, etc. Of course if you are looking for fresh food or freshly cooked food this is the place. Covers... More

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
