Interesting to walk around. Stalls dont set up too early so would suggest after 11am. Doesnt take too long to walk around so you dont need to leave more than an hour for this.

Our young family loved this second hand / bargain market, picking up clogs, woolly hats and souvenir little clogs for bargain prices.

It was an interesting market. Had a lot of things to see but it was definitely more for the locals as they had meats, vegetables, etc. We were able to get a few souvenirs here. It's worth a stroll if you are just walking around.

A right mixture of interesting hand crafted stalls/ souvenirs etc in amongst many second hand clothing and bric-à-brac stalls. Really depends what you're looking for and the prices are some of the best but not the ideal market for tourists imo.

It is really a flea market with sub standard products. Go to the Albert Cypt Market instead. It is wonderful.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

trams are well set up for anyone with mobility issues.Not used the cruise terminal, but there is a tram stop by the market, and trams take you to many locations in central Amsterdam.
