It's worth going here to sample some of the street food or just watch the buzz of the market. It's also worth going late to see how the whole thing is packed away and how the Heren's take over the streets looking for morsels of fish. Buzzing place.

We visited the Albert Cuyp Market last week. I was very surprised at how enjoyable it was, mainly because it was full of locals and not crammed full of tourists (except us!). It was a great find as we were looking for Dutch cuisine (and got it in the form of poffertjes and stroopwaffles!) it was very pleasant to wander... More

If you're a food traveler like me you have your list of must eats already put together for Amsterdam - frites, seafood, stroopwafles, poferrtjes, and on and on. This market is your one stop shop to get everything you wanted (come hungry) at local prices. Good people watching and everyone we engaged with was extremely friendly. There were some nicer... More

Great place to eat and try some Dutch delicacies. You can also get any type of tourist tat that you might be interested in, at reasonable prices. Lots of great cafes and bars around here as well.

This market is a mile long! It is Amsterdams longest. It sells everything from clothes, food, vegetables, bags, tourist things to bicycles. Lots of bargains. Enjoy hot stroopwaffles and crepes freshly made in front of you. Stop at Bennys chicken stall to enjoy a delicious hot chicken roll or chicken satay. Lots of shops behind the stalls, most of which...

Had some of the best food we had in Europe at this market. Make sure to stop by Twins Olives for a sandwich or at the Turkish couples table for a Gozlem. Beyond fantastic. Went back twice for lunch. The shopping is alright, but we were there in winter so maybe not all the stalls were open. Must be because... More

I wondered whether the Albert Cuyp Market, Amsterdam's largest outdoor market, would still be open in the dark days of late December, but I could see people with shopping baskets heading that direction as the sun rose (there's a reason the market doesn't open until after 9). There were a few empty slots, perhaps, but still multiple seafood, vegetable, and... More

A brilliant market with an abundance of fresh local produce, artisan cheeses, breads and other yummy things. Clothes, clogs and fresh cut flowers too.

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
