Alkmaar Shopping Tips by angiebabe Top 5 Page for this destination
Alkmaar Shopping: 10 reviews and 12 photos
there were several shops or stalls that had Dutch clogs for sale - wooden ones and for the first time id seen them, slipper ones ie soft ones done in the shape of wooden clogs! (which i fell for as theyre light and easier to carry esp home to NZ and Oz with my already over burgeoning european collection of travel stuff, and theyre rather different.
Even though youd imagine that prices for touristy things like painted wooden clogs would be over priced i found them much much cheaper than prices id looked at at the Amsterdam airport duty free section.
What to buy: wooden clogs or try the clog slippers!
Directions: the stalls around the farmers markets around the cheesemarket and town centre
Theme: Local Craft
market stalls with women dressed in period costume in the hub of the tourist area next to the inspirational cheese weighing ceremony each Friday - with the taste test bits of cheese of all sorts of flavours to entice you - garlic, carraway seeds, natural, farmers cheese, paprika, pepper - go for it - so lots of atmosphere to provide sales gimmick but the prices were actually a bit dearer than in the local shops when i roamed around later.
15 euro for your choice of 3 small cheeses - maybe about 300 g each
What to buy: cheese made in the locality providing income for the locality
Address: streets of alkmaar central
Theme: Food and Drink
