It is not the kind of "flower market" one have in mind. So just don't bother to go if that is what you're looking for. Its just a street selling the regular touristy souvenirs, flower bulbs, cheese, etc. There is a shop selling posters and...More

There are about 20 odd shops in this short stretch next to the canal. We were there during the tulip season so there were plenty of beautiful tulip flowers and plants on sale. There are also a couple of souvenir shops with plentiful of Amsterdam...More

Less about the flowers, more about the tulips. Which is fair enough if that is what you want. We got a pick and mix bag of bulbs which flowered this season so very pleased. A nice place to have a 20 minute walk about.

Interesting area with lots of shops to buy tulip bulbs and it's along a pretty canal. I thought there would be more actual flowers to buy / see, but it was mostly bulbs, souvenirs, and fake flowers. If you are in the area I would...More

Great Amsterdam experience. Very crowded. Lost of shops. Some good for kids some not so much. Prices aren't too bad for the metro area. The flowers are amazing. But no photography of the flowers. Lots of bulbs for planting at home.

I went there expecting to be impressed with the beauty of the flowers, but I didn't feel like this at all. The market was full, but I didn't see many flowers.

Sure, there are nice flowers for sale, but those are available at any garden store anywhere. Nothing special really. A lot of souvenirs at sale. Not even my flower-crazy wife thought this was worth visiting.

The market is fun to visit, with lots of varieties and colors of beautiful flowers. The stalls get slightly repetitive, and the overall feel is somewhat touristy. Good place for browsing and purchasing souvenirs.

This is a real treat! It looks like chaos but after a few minutes one recognizes that the chaos is organized! Flowers depart the facility within 90 minutes of being sold!

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

I was there in 2014 and the same happened to me - all the bulbs I bought was just the cheapest standard red tulip - and not the special ones pictured outside the tulip bags!! Nothing has apparently changed in 2017! I even wrote the City Council back in 2014 and the promised to do something about it - but apparently they did nothing... My advice: Don't buy tulips there - go to a real garden center!

I was at the Flower Market on Monday afternoon going in & out of the flower & souvenir shops. I saw a scarf/pashmina that I liked but did not buy. I can't find the sparkly I AMSTERDAM scarf online & I don't know the name of the shop. Do you think you can help me locate the shop? I am back in the states now.
