Albert Cuyp Market

since 1905, it’s a one-stop-shop for fresh meat, fish, fruit and veg, clothes, jewellery and just about everything else. It is well worth wandering simply to soak up the atmosphere. If you’re peckish, do try the roast chicken or herring. Stroopwafels will do the trick for those with a sweet tooth.

Make sure to hang out at the intersection between Albert Cuypstraat and Eerste van der Helststraat, it’s filled with cafés, bars and cool little boutiques. 


Originally known as the ‘Jewish market’ because of its location in the former Jewish district, this site has drawn stallholders since 1885. More than 300 now trade here, focusing on vintage clothes, cheap bric-à-brac and secondhand goods. Bargains are plentiful – particularly when it comes to bikes, antiques and jewellery – and you’ll find plenty of locals hanging around what’s thought to be the biggest and best flea market in Amsterdam

A secret covered passage in one of the oldest parts of the city.

The Oudemanhuispoort or ‘Old Man’s House Gate’ is a passage near the Faculty of Law of the University of Amsterdam where second-hand textbooks, prints and sheet music are sold. 

In earlier days the surrounding buildings and hidden garden of the Oudemanhuispoort were an almshouse for the elderly. Today you can shop in the many stalls that line both sides of the passage, maps, music sheet, prints and poster. 

Halfway through the passage is a large door that gives access to a green courtyard, which nowadays belongs to the University of Amsterdam. 

At this book market, Vincent van Gogh sometimes bought books. For lack of money, he paid with portraits.
