One of the best local markets to visit in Amsterdam is the Sunday Market at Westergasfabriek. It is happening every first Sunday of the month, unless scheduled otherwise.
You can expect market stalls selling housewares, jewelry and accessories, affordable art, kids clothing, wool products, all kinds of cheese, vintage items and wonderful organic food and drinks at the indoor and outdoor cafes. Not forgetting there are creative workshops, live music and several activities to entertain the kids. A great mix of everything for everyone!
This Sunday Market is one of my favorite monthly markets in town. Opening hours are from 12 noon to 6pm and entrance is FREE!
It is always a nice stroll through the luscious urban public garden, the Westerpark, to get to the Westergasfabriek. A different side of Amsterdam to embrace for a change!
Note: Tony Chocolonely chocolate store is on site at Westergasfabriek too. Chocolate sampling anyone?
