If you are lucky, there is a chocolate stand that has chocolates in all shapes and sizes. I even saw boobs and a penis! Yes, this is Amsterdam. Another not to miss stand is the fresh stroopendwaffels! These are a very Dutch treat and the ones made fresh at the market are the best. It's two thin waffle-wafers sandwiched with warm caramel! Mmmmm, makes me hungry just thinking of it. To end the health extravaganza, stop at a frites stand and get some vlaamse frites with mayo, and you have just enjoyed a perfect market meal!
Enjoying this market is not hard. Just remember, since it is popular, it does get busy so don't forget to keep a fairly good eye on your bags and purses. It's always better to be safe than sorry.

This market will make you wish you had a kitchenette because the fresh fish on sale is unbelieveable. We find it interesting to look at the fresh produce, too. Of course, you will find many vegetables and fruits that are available in your supermarket but you'll see some you think of as exotic (because of the price) selling for much less and vice versa. It's another way to learn about the area you're visiting.
A couple blocks from this market we visited a row of stores selling electronic goods and got a good price on a Phillips camera they've stopped selling the states.
You are leaving the regular tourist area when you go to this market, and that's part of the charm. An excellent website on the market is Great Public Spaces. The Albert Cuypmarkt website is mostly in Dutch.
