  • Markets in Zuid Oost (the ‘Bijlmer’): Great markets, where you can taste the melting pot of Amsterdam, Afican vegetables, Indian spices, South American cuisine.
  • The ‘Lindengrachtmarkt’: typical Amsterdam market, all kinds of products. Only on Saturdays. You can make a combination with the Noordermarkt (the farmer market) which is around the corner (turn right at the end of the Lindengracht at the Brouwersgracht and take the first right again, the Prinsengracht, which leads you to the Noordermarkt) tram 3 and bus 18, get out at ‘Willemsstraat’.
  • De Bloemenmarkt, Singel between Muntplein and Koningsplein, al kinds of flowers, bulbs, plants and some stupid ‘traditional Holland’ souvenirs.
  • Art Plein, Spui. What would they sell over here? I’ll help you: it isn’t cat food… only on Sundays.
  • Book market, every Friday on Spui you will find second hand books on almost any subject.
