Amsterdam tips: (flea) markets, vintage

There is a flea market on Waterlooplein 6 days a week, Mon-Sat from about 10 am to about 4 pm. More and more stands offer new clothes though… but the shop called Episode on the corner near Rembrandt House is nice for second hand clothes. A bit expensive though. They also have a shop on Keizersgracht.

Petticoat on Lindengracht has really nice second hand clothes and fair prices.

If you’re there on a Monday morning, go to the Noordermarkt, with lots of second hand clothes and books and antiques. Open until 13.00h. Afterwards, have the best apple pie in town at Winkel, Noordermarkt 43.


IJhallen is Europe’s biggest flea market and is held two days a month.

Second hand shop called Zora is on Linnaeusstraat in eastern Amsterdam (tram 9), opposite the police station. It sells high quality and brand clothing.
There are various quite expensive second hand shops in 9 straatjes, for example the shop called Lady Day.

Some nice ordinary markets can be found on Dapperstraat, Albert Cuypstraat, Ten Katestraat. More about markets….
