It's a neat market with lots of tulip bulbs and other seeds. They also carry some that have the certificates you need to take them out of Europe. This is also right next to a great shopping street, so it's a good area to explore.

Fun to watch the colorful Tulips bulbs, but if you are searching for souvenirs, there are plenty of stores with a great variety. The best thing were all the cheese stores along the market, where you can sample a wide variety of flavors! From regular...More

Go here to check out the local obsession with Tulips! Or maybe it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. Either way, they have the largest collection of tulip bulbs anywhere! Interesting place to stroll through.

Not too many flowers being sold, but it is out of tulip season so understandable. It does offer a great range of gifts, bulbs and all sorts of flower related things. It is a must visit for culture.

Here you can find a variety of flowers and flower seeds. There are also cheap souvenirs. Albert Hejin and Herring shop are also nearby.

If you are passing by and need a souvenir, then have a look. To call this a flower market is a bit of an exaggeration. Full mainly of bulbs and the usual tourist trappings. Nearby though are some nice shops and cafes.
