Shops and markets in Amsterdam - Outdoor Markets
Waterlooplein Fleamarket

WaterloopleinThis famous flea market is the largest of Amsterdam. About 300 stalls offer anything from bric-a-brac, great second-hand and new clothes to food, old records and DVD’s. The Waterlooplein market is also the oldest market of Amsterdam.

Waterlooplein BasketsThe original outdoor market dates from 1893 and was a busy Jewish market, but this was ended by World War II. In the 1950s prosperity in the Netherlands improved and the market was reborn. Flower Power took over the market in the 60s and 70s, when Amsterdam was a magnet for the hippies. Nowadays it has become touristy and prices have gone up, but if you take your time, you might find something unexpected!
