Owner description: This is Amsterdam's bustling flea market with more than 300 stalls of merchandise offering a wide selection of items from secondhand clothing and antiques to leather coats and shoes.
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Half the stalls here sell nothing but used bicycles and accessories.
Certain stall owners I encountered speak terrible Dutch and little English - a massive pain in the neck.

Did not get to try any food here but prices were extremely touristy due to location.

There are far, far better markets around in Amsterdam such as the one at Noordermarkt (best fresh foods), Lindenmarkt (my personal favourite for cooked food), Dappermarkt (affordable clothing and more food), Albert Cuyp (various).

If you've ever been to a market elsewhere, don't bother. Lots of random tat being sold like a poor car boot. Nothing like a market or 'flea market'

we were expecting to be able to buy souvenirs and something different, most of the items were second hand clothes, old and often broken ornaments, dusty old books, and prices are not cheap.

Waterlooplein market is an active place for buying all kinds of stuff at low prices. Quality of stuff not guaranteed. Good bargain centre.
