Some of the stalls or shops sell plants and fresh cuts, most sell large bags of bulbs with other worldly and unlikely color outcomes and single rootstock that isn't necessarily top shelf. All that aside, its colorful and fun to... More

On the flower market you can buy as many different tulip bulbs as you can imagine. Make sure that you check all the prices before you buy anything. If you are flower lover the you have to see it, if not then there is just a lot of tulips.

This was a very extensive market on the water and was fairly large with a large inventory of flowers to buy or look at. It was very interesting and very crowded

Absolute waste of time. Mostly tourist rubbish and tack to buy. All the reviews say the bulbs are also not as stated. Full of rude tourists with no sense of direction and getting completely in your way without a care in the world. Only two stalls sell actually flowers & one of them has a no photo rule, seriously??, do... More
