First, just looking at them has to make you happy, unless you have anthophobia - the fear of flowers. The amaryllis bulbs were huge and firm, but if you are travelling... where are you going to put them? Having the ability to buy fresh cut...More

I was not very impressed with the market. It's mostly just where you can buy bulbs of different kinds. I visited briefly while walking through the city from one place to the other, but for my personal tastes, not somewhere I would waste more than...More

There are bulbs of every variety - great to see. It is easy to get to as it is on a tram route. It'is a nice ride back down towards the central train station as it passes many attractive old buildings

Very crowded but saw a few pretty stalls and LOTS of souvenir shops. Didn't stay long as most stalls seemed to sell the same things, but worth a quick look if you're passing nearby.

Was not what I expected. I did enjoy walking around and the flowers were pretty, but there were many more souvenirs than flowers .

It is a beautiful market with lots and lots of tulips. One of the most fascinating bulbs is the “can” bulb which you can bury in the ground. This is something new to us. The prices are cheap compared to where we come from, and...More

Such a vast choice/variety of flowers that you can not order online, find in your local garden center/ nursery, nor in your neighbors backyard. Most merchants are very knowledgeable and genuinely want to help you make the best selection for your location. We enjoyed the...More

Unfortunately you can only bring tulips to the US and Canada as well as a few limited other bulbs. Such beautiful flowers but so hard to pass by. I realize this is only because the US and Canada have strict regulations. If your country allows...More

Don’t buy in the flower market. All the bulbs are the cheapest red variety no matter what the label says. I bought three different packs from three different stalls. All came up red. Just buy bulbs from your local garden... More
