1. Albert Cuypmarkt
The Albert Cuyp, situated near the famous former Heineken brewery, is Amsterdam's largest and busiest daily market. From Monday to Saturday it is packed with local shoppers rather than tourists. You can buy anything here, from fresh fish to fresh fruit; from fabric to footwear - and of course you'll have to try the delicious traditional Dutch herring with onions and pickles. You can also find many exotic foods and herbs at this market, stocked by and for the non-Dutch Amsterdam community. Generally speaking the prices are low but make sure you are getting value for money. By visiting the Albert Cuyp market you'll get a taste of real multi-cultural Amsterdam streetlife.

Amsterdam, like most large cities, has a flea market. This market is widely known amongst people from the city itself but also people from outside Amsterdam. The traditionally Jewish market, dating back to 1893, is located not far from the centre of the city on the Waterloo Square and has a very characteristic atmosphere. It has about 30 stalls and most of the merchandise is displayed on the ground. Items on sale here include an incredible variety of clothes, jewellery, all kinds of junk, antique/rare books and leather coats.

It has more than 80 stands, about 80 showcases and a market square on which all kinds of people sell various pieces of art, antiques and bric-a-brac.

7. The Amsterdam stamp market
The Amsterdam stamp market is located close to the heart of the city. The helpful traders at the dozen or so stalls speak perfect English (just like most people in the Netherlands). The market is situated in a kind of stamp village, with stamp shops in the nearby Rosmarijnweg and Nieuwzijds Voorburgwaal open throughout the week.
Amsterdam Stamp Market, Nieuwzijds Voorburgwaal,
Wednesday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

More indoor fleamarket than antique centre, this old warehouse building has several dozen dealers, many of whom just pile their items up on tables. Some interesting items, but you'll need to look for them carefully.
Description: This is litterally the most serious "junk" market I've ever seen.
Having said that, it's quite good fun.
Address: Looiersgracht 38
Directions: Tram 7, 10 & 12 will bring you to the Looiersgracht
Other Contact: Not Friday or Sunday

De Slegte, situated in the city's busiest shopping street, is one of the largest bookshops in Amsterdam. It offers an enormous amount of literature, spanning various languages and the stock also includes old maps and prints.

5. Plaatboef (De)
This rather popular record store has several shops in The Netherlands and is famous for its odd name, which translated into English means The Record Thief. It specialises in second-hand records and CDs, some new material is offered, as well. The store itself is relatively large but somewhat disorganised, so if you like tidiness you'd be better off somewhere else. Generally speaking, their stock is offered at low prices, especially when compared to the current prices for both new and used records and CDs at other stores in the city. One minor disappointment about this shop is that they don't often have all the music one might be looking for. Not only can you buy used CD's here, you can sell your old ones as well.

Address: Rozengracht 40 Amsterdam 1016 NC

They are mostly paperbacks, but are all thoughtfully displayed, which is often not the case in most other used books stores. Besides the plethora of English language books, they also offer many French and German texts.
