The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Very nice walk. Go there on an empty stomach
    There are lots of food stalls at reasonable prices. It is a long street with stalls along both sides selling food, fruits, clothes, housewares, etc. nice to visit for an hour. Please note that it closes at 5 pm daily and it is not open on Sunday.

    Something for everyone
    I came to the market on a Friday afternoon after visiting the Van Gogh museum. It’s only a 10-15 minute walk from there so great to group these together in the same day. There are about 3 blocks of stalls to walk down and there’s something for everyone - different kinds of Dutch foods, Mexican tacos, Asian foods and various vendors selling anything you could possibly want from seafood to flowers to souvenirs. I tried bitterballen, fries with Mayo, poffertjes. I got 2 pairs of earrings and a windmill figurine as a gift for a family member. The prices were reasonable and I walked away a happy (and full) camper!

    Worth a visit
    Worthwhile street market. Lots of vendors of all sorts: crafts and food and household items and souvenirs. Good values to be had. Note that it says it opens at 9:00 but many vendors are not set up until significantly later. Bring your appetite!

    Everything you need from a market, with plenty to eat and drink in surrounding streets.
    This market is huge extending for several blocks. You could pretty much set your whole house up, cloth the whole family and eat a different meal each day for weeks. Local fruit, veg, flowers, tourist tat and food delicacies. Music, drink and much more.

    Interesting market
    Albert Cuypmarkt is a huge market for both locals and tourists. The long row of shops and stalls offers everything from food, fresh produces to handicrafts. Despite of the almost omnipresent tourists, goods are still cheaper than those in the city center. Make sure you arrive here hungry; a plethora of eateries will fill you up.

    Good prices, nice location, a ton of options to choose from
    Nice location near the centre, we were there two times in one week. The shops are nice with a lot of flowers and souveniers to choose from, but most of the shops offer the same stuff at a bit different prices. I have to add that if you need any souveniers, flowers or just smoking accessories, they have it all. You can also stop there for the dutch pancakes or cheese if you like. Just mind that it can get very busy.

    Good outside market with a few food options and market stalls
    We came here for a walk around, it was a raining day and unfortunately there isn’t really anywhere you can get undercover. The market stalls all have covers but they are limited and when it’s pouring down with rain you do get wet. We came on a Monday and didn’t find there was tonnes of options most of the stalls sold similar stuff. We went to a stroop wafels stall and had both an original and a dipped chocolate one if you are there you have to try both as they are so good and made fresh in front of you cost about €3 - €4 each. We also tried bennys chicken which was good they have a few different options on offer and the value for money is good. Worth a visit if your in the area.

    Enjoyable experience
    This market offered a really good range of cheap, excellent street food and lots of items to buy, including souvenirs. There are also a number of permanent food and beverage outlets with outdoor seating amongst it all. A vibrant atmosphere. Well worth a visit and not far from some of the big tourist sights.

    GO GO GO ~ The Market is Wonderful.
    Visited the market on a Friday, it was not too crowed. A 10 minute walk from the Van Gogh Museum area. Market is delightful, many different vendors, art and food. If you are a firs time visitor to AMS for sure visit this local market. It's a nice break and all the vendors are charming and helpful. The young man selling the chocolate brownies, they are THE BEST EVER.

    Well worth a visit.
    Visited this market a couple of times whilst we were in Amsterdam. Great to walk through end to end with lots to see. Great variety of stalls with all sorts to eat. Lovely fresh fish stalls that cook it to order as well.

we heard about this venue and decided to check it out. There was a stall which has a variety of breads. The man at the stall wasn't very pleasant, in fact, i'm of the opinion that he is rude and not courteous to Asian tourists. It ruined our day.
Will hesitate to visit again.

Local flee market close to our hotel in museum quarter. Small stalls with local foods and trinkets etc. Not worth going out of your way to visit. It was just ok.

We had excellent pita and sticky stroopwaffelen here. Also bought a few souvenirs and the prices were a lot better than the gift shops in the town. Definitely worth a visit and easy to get to as it has it's own stop on the tram line number 4.

A mixture a stalls at this open air market. Easy to access via tram or metro.
From souvenirs, jewellery, fabric, food, produce, clothing and much more this market has something for everyone. The area has lots of cafes and restaurants but there is a good selection of “local” food in the market itself. Not an essential must see in Amsterdam but it is worth a visit if you have time.

A plethora of stalls serving food, souvenirs, clothes, bags and nicknacks. We only purchased edibles starting with a workman favourite - the mackerel roll. Wandered along a bit and stopped for a homemade stroopwaffle. Since the weather was a bit cold & wet we then finished with a cone of frites (& mayo) to warm us up.

Good market off the usual tourist routes with a selection of everything whether you're a local looking for fresh food or a stray tourist looking for an original souvenir. If you want an honest bite to eat in a proper Dutch cafe then try 'Cafe Koffiehuis "De Cuyp." (See picture)' It's definitely a locals place but the owner was really friendly and welcomes everyone. The food isn't flash nor expensive but, trust me, it's good. The apple pancake especially.

The market was great on Saturday. A range of products and food, at reasonable prices. On Thursday, however, there were many stall holders not there - disappointing.

Heard about this market from virtually every guide to Amsterdam I looked at. Strangely smaller than expected.
We visited after a morning at a nearby museum and thought we’d try out the street food for lunch.
Not every stall or space was occupied, but we found enough to keep us happy. The grilled cheese sandwich place was really good as were the fries from the chap at the very end of the market. We couldn’t miss Rudi’s Stroop wafels and bought lots as gifts too. For us, the best and cheapest you’ll find.
For the rest of the market, there are a few cheap souvenir shops which were good for bits and pieces and definitely the best prices for clog slippers (the airports prices were almost double).
The cheese stalls were very well priced too and seemed more genuine to the more glossy branded cheese shops on the Damrak and in central Amsterdam.
There are of course other stalls selling various other goods ranging from from toiletries to cheap clothes and household items.
Overall a very nice experience which served its purpose. Definitely recommend.

Must visit for seafood lovers, and others looking for a morning stroll off the beaten tourist path. Lots of fisheries, bakeries, cafes. Next to The Pijp.
