Tips Before You Go
This popular market gets especially crowded during summer and on Sundays, and is subject to closing earlier during winter or bad weather conditions.
It is recommended to visit the Albert Cuypmarkt in the late morning, as that’s when the market really starts to come alive.
You must try fresh syrup waffles (stroopwafels) at the Albert Cuypmarkt, as they are in a league of their own and should definitely not be missed.
