Market of the East
Why locals love it
The Dappermarkt is almost the same as the famous Albert Cuypmarkt, but with way less touristic stands. Instead, they offer goods from all over the world. That is the magic of the Dappermarkt, it almost serves as a kind of open air community center.
Why you should visit it
A walk on this market goes like this: A typical Dutch flower stand next to one with Indian spices. One further there is Vietnamese food and his neighbor sells Italian snacks. The man that sells Belgian fries opposite to him waves at the kids of his Surinam neighbor. All these cultures move in great harmony for many years now.
Don't feel like walking or biking from the centre? The train ride from Central Station to 'Amsterdam Muiderpoort' is less than five minutes.
