I used to work by the Blaak Markt and would always go on Tuesday to get my fresh fruit, veg and bread for the week. It is incredibly good value and good quality. It is also nice to browse for flowers - great variety and price- ,second hand furniture or candies for a reduced price. Clothes are not so good and most fish is sold frozen -defrosting on the stall. I always get a corn on the cob from the street vendor for a euro, healthy and tasty snack.

This is the market where i buy most of my vegetables and fruit twice a week. Lots of products on offer and very cheap compared to what you pay in most supermarkets. Prices of fruit and vegetables mostly drop between 15:30 en 16:30 when stalls want to clean up. This is also the place to buy fresh fish, flowers and of course....dutch cheese .

For tourist this is the best place to try some real Dutch specialities like haring (raw salty fish), poffertjes (little pancakes with butter and sugar), stroopwafels (waffles with sirup), patatje met (belgian fries with mayonaise from Bram Ladage) and lekkerbek (deep fried fish).

This is market on a big square near the Blaak metro station. I wondered a lot of different things you can find there, starting from stroopwafels and ending clothes. I visited this market during Christmas time, so you can imagine how it was vividly there. Most of all I liked the variety of flowers on this market. And if you are there in a Saturday evening, you can get flowers for cheaper price.
