If you’re into second hand, vintage, antiques, silverware and bric-a-brac this cosy fleamarket on the Noordermarkt needs to be on your ‘ to-do in Amsterdam’ list. Located in the Jordaan district, which by itself is worth the visit, this ‘Monday-only fleamarket’ is as lively as it gets with its spry/ streetsmart marketmen, stylists looking for gems and happy-go-lucky visitors. ( A perfect cross-section of the people of Amsterdam, we think.)
Also worth mentioning are the surrounding cafés and restaurants which have tables and benches outside no matter the weather. Special shout-out to Winkel 43 for its famous apple pie (ask for whipped cream on top if you’re not scared of calories)!!
