Best markets in Amsterdam

Want to go the market in Amsterdam? We have all kinds of markets. I will tell you the ones you have to visit!

A quick search on Google or a read in your Lonely Planet will tell you to visit Albert Cuyp market (great for fresh stroopwafels), Waterlooplein (great for second hand stuff) and the flower market.  But what markets do locals visit?

Ten Katemarkt
My absolute favorite market in Amsterdam is the Ten Katemarkt. This small market has everything you need, nice cheese, haring with onions, beautiful flowers and local people. When visiting here make sure you go to Boer Geert for a Pastrami sandwich (you will smell where to go). Try some fresh hand cut fries and don’t forget to go all the way to back for the best Humus in Amsterdam.

 Noordermarkt organic market
Every saturday from 9.00 am till 4 pm you can indulge on all kinds of tasty organic foods at the Noordermarket. Like rustic breads or anti-pasta.










Sunday Market 
Every month on Sunday you can visit this amazing fashion, art & designmarket at the Westergasfabriek. You can shop for vintage clothing, affordable art but you can also eat there.

Across the water in the very hip Amsterdam Noord district every first weekend of the month IJhallen takes place. Inside two huge shipbuilding halls you will find over 800 stalls of secondhand clothing and furniture. It costs € 5,- to get it in and is best to come early in the morning (for the best stuff) or late in the afternoon (for the best deals). You can take the free ferry across, which is already a must do on its own! Check the IJhallen website to see when the market is on.


When you tell a Amsterdammer that you went to de markt they might ask Markt with a q? With this they are referring to the organic supermarket Marqt. This shop should definitly be on your to-do-list when in Amsterdam. Even if it is only to stroll through the shop and taste all the delicious things they have on display.  You can find Marqt in the city centre at Wolvenstraat 32 (9 streets area) and Utrechtsestraat 17.
