The coolest markets in Amsterdam

Every Saturday a bustling market takes over the square during the Noordermarkt. One half is focused on organic food, while the other half is full of vibrant shopping surprises. Whether you are in the mood for food or a special item, the Noordermarkt is the place to go! Take a stroll through the stalls and stumble upon fine antiques, vintage clothing, curiosities, art and design. The weekly Pure Market is one of Amsterdam’s most renowned markets; a source of exceptional, artisanal, Dutch and international produce, food and creativity. Approximately 70% of the stalls are food related and the rest are a mix of designer, vintage and gift items. Amsterdam’s largest daily flea market is located on the Waterlooplein in the centre of the city. Spend a couple hours browsing through its many stalls to get a taste of the local culture. Every stall has something different on offer, including (second-hand) clothes, antiques, knick-knacks, souvenirs, bicycle parts and much more.

Year-round markets

Most markets are (partly)outdoors, but that doesn’t mean that you can only visit them in summer! The markets in Amsterdam can be visited year-round. Just pick-up a poncho or an umbrella and enjoy one of the markets in Amsterdam.
