Not the corporate chain type, like Amsterdam's ubiquitous Albert Heijns, but neighborhood ones, where local farmers and craftspeople hawk their wares. Whether you're in the market for produce, flowers, clothes or kitsch, you're bound to find something you need at the Albert Cuypmarkt, Waterlooplein Flea Market, Dappermarkt, Ten Katemarkt, Noordermarkt, Pure Markt or Neighbourfood Market.
