Although this says it opens at 9:30, by well after 10:00 many of the stalls were either not open or just settng up. Usual market stuff except for 1 stall with collectable tins and one with books, records etc.

The market was interesting, selling a variety of clothes, books, paintings, jewelry and tourist tat. I thought it would be bigger, didn't take very long to look around the whole thing.

If you really like flea markets (we do) then definitely worth a visit but if your only here for a short time or aren't so fussed, then feel free to give it a miss, nice to wander round though.

After a tip we visited the "waterlooplein", a nice and cozy old Jewish market. We bought a few things and enjoyed the local food.

Quirky market/bootsale with plenty of spirit. Lots of locals and travellers. We ended up getting some cool printed tops. Lots of food/drink/cheese/chocolate to choose from as well as a combination of regular stuff like flossys and fake leather goods.

very nice, but not one of the "must to do" in Amsterdam. if you are around, i.e visiting in the portugeous synagoge and the wheter is nice, it will be a nice option

Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of

trams are well set up for anyone with mobility issues.Not used the cruise terminal, but there is a tram stop by the market, and trams take you to many locations in central Amsterdam.
