Most of the bulbs are over-priced and in not good quality. You'd be better off going to a proper garden shops further away from the touristic areas. Even Horrenbach has better selection of bulbs.

I have never seen so many tulip bulbs in my life. This is a real pretty and colorful walk. Go check it out even if you're not interested in flowers. It's a neat little walk. Plenty of shopping and food near by.

I love markets, but this is a mini one. There are many flowers here, lots of gifts, but everywhere the same giftideas (with the same price). Buy some tulip onions to have a real 'duch' gift. Oposide the market there are some shops for cheese, go and try some of them. Usually they have samples or tasting boxes.

Just a casual walk along the street and through the shops of the Blumenmarket is a great thing. Beautiful flowers, souvenirs and tulip bulbs and other seeds along one of Amsterdam's famed canals. It only takes an hour to enjoy the walk, the beauty and the people of this free attraction. This is not a typical tourist thing. It is... More

You can buy almost every typical Dutch flower in here. Don't go to the first shop from the main street as it seems to me that it is the most expensive one. Flowers looks good, we buyed around 100 tulips, we will see what will grow up next year.

Whereever you look around there are flowers and flowers. If you are not too familiar with the different sort of flowers, the small shopkeepers help you to buy seeds and bulbs.

The flower market is one of the essential landmarks of Amsterdam. There's nothing new about it, nor exciting, but it is nice to walk among the flower shows, enjoy the colors and smells and absorb the culture of flower-growing.

I visited Amsterdam and the flower market a year ago in May and got me a bunch of nice tulip bulbs to create my own Keukenhof. Everyone who grows tulips knows, that the bulbs will be taken from the ground after the flowers bloom and will be put back in October. So as I was there in May, the bulbs... More

I think this is the third topic for the same interest point: Bloemenmarkt aka Flower market.It's a floating market(barges moored on Singel canal) with a lot of stalls selling flowers,bulbs,seeds and souvenirs.
