Amsterdam’s most famous open- air market, celebrated its 100th year in 2005.
Find bargains on everything from clothing and textile to food and furniture.
The Albert Cuyp Market is in the middle of the nineteenth century Amsterdam district of De Pijp: Amsterdam’s Latin Quarter. Particularly in recent years De Pijp has become a very popular place to live. The many exotic little shops, creative and craft based small businesses, and friendly cafés and restaurants give the area a lively and varied character.
Try the fresh orange juice, even our Dutch queen had one according the picture at the stand.
You will find real Amsterdam humour and a genuine Amsterdam atmosphere and amiability. An outing to Amsterdam is not complete without a visit to the most popular market in the Netherlands.
The Cuyp has been in existence since 1905 and after more then 100 years is still incredibly attractive to the ordinary Amsterdammer, to bargain hunters, strollers, day-trippers, torusts…..for just about everyone. Fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, flowers and plants, you will find them all at Albert Cuyp. But also splendeid materials, trendy clothes, textiles, fine leather goods and jewellery. Have a tasty new herringat the fish stall, or take a bag of freshly made syrup waffles home. You can drink a cup of coffee in a cheerful old fashioned coffee house or in a super modern café.
Discover a statue of a popular Dutch singer, André Hazes, on the corner of Albert Cuypstraat and the Eerste Sweelinckstraat.
With 260 stalls Albert Cuyp is the largest daily market in Europe. Not a place where you will get bored quickly.
