Wander through Albert Cuypmarkt's diverse stalls
Albert Cuypmarkt has played an important role in Amsterdam’s daily life for over a century and ranks among the largest markets of its kind in the world. Each day (except Sunday) dozens of local merchants assemble stalls at the market and then, hawk their wares from the morning until the late afternoon. The market runs through the middle of a southernly neighbourhood called de Pijp, which is renowned for its charming 19th-century architecture and diverse culinary scene. Many stalls at Albert Cuypmarkt actually back onto larger brick-and-mortar stores that sell everything from luxury antique furniture to made-to-order flower bouquets.
