Street market in Amsterdam: Albert Cuyp Market
The Albert Cuyp Market is the largest and most popular outdoor market in the Netherlands. It’s located in the De Pijp area in the Oud-Zuid district. This street market is frequented by locals and tourists alike, so you can expect reasonable prices.
The market has been in the Albert Cuypstraat since 1905. There you can find fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, chocolates, nuts, flowers, souvenirs, clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry and decor objects.
Although there’s nothing special about the Albert Cuyp Market, I recommend a visit. Especially for the ones who like to mix themselves with the locals. My advice is to stay away from the cheap clothing and the souvenirs made in China and go towards the street food.
Here is the best place to buy cheese because it’s cheaper than the cheese stores in the city center. It’s also a good place to try typical Dutch snacks like raw herring sandwich or the delicious warm stroopwafels.
The Heineken Experience is close by. If you’re thinking about visiting it, it’s a good idea to combine the two.
Monday to Saturday – 9:00 to 17:00
