Albert Cuyp Market reviews
What a total waste of time. Not worth the walk. A totally rubbish market. Single row of stalls, left and right as you walk through. Nothing interesting to buy what so ever. Typical clothes stalls..... more »
It's a fairly pleasant market, supposedly the longest in Europe or so we were told. There isn't much more here than in any other market though so don't go out of your way to get here. We wandered... more »
Mostly stalls with imported mass produced clothing, bags, shoes etc, a few fish stalls, one true Dutch herring stall, and the best- some fresh flower stalls, mostly towards the end of the week. Some stall holders nice, some really rude.. More interesting shops in the vicinity.
This is a good market, but relatively small and standard in its offering. There are a decent number of food stalls on offer, but nothing spectacularly unique or interesting. If you are getting a bite to eat here, not all stalls offer seating, so be prepared to eat on the go. It's a good way to while away an hour or two.
