Dapper Market (Dappermarkt)
Regarded as one of the best outdoor markets in Amsterdam, Dapper Market (Dappermarkt) opened in 1910. Its eastern Amsterdam location in a thriving neighborhood of immigrants from many countries lends it a multicultural feel. In addition to fruits, vegetables, and ready-to-eat foods, the 250-stall market also sells inexpensive everyday items.

The Basics
Guided walking tours focused on off-the-beaten-path Amsterdam often include a visit to Dapper Market and offer the opportunity to learn more about the colorful area than would be possible without a local guide’s insight. Also a stop on hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tours, the market is a great place to visit for a meal of international cuisine, with cafés and other shops lining Dapperstraat, the street the market is located on. Here you'll find a Turkish bakery, an Islamic butcher, a Surinamese food store, African cosmetics, and stores selling clothing and shoes.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Dapper Market is must-visit for foodies and those with an interest in multicultural Amsterdam.
  • As with any busy market, it’s best to keep an eye on your belongings and watch out for pickpockets.
  • The Waterlooplein Market is just a 15-minute walk away, making it easy to combine visits to two of Amsterdam’s best markets.

How to Get There

The closest train station to Dapper Market is Muiderpoort, a 5-minute walk away. Tram lines 3, 7, 9, 10, and 14 all stop within a few minutes’ walk of the market, and it’s just a 5-minute walk from the Tropenmuseum.
 
When to Get There
The market is open Monday through Saturday, 9am to 5pm, and Saturdays are busiest. Check the market’s website for information on community events including live music and festive events such as Ladies Day (March 8) and the Christmas Gala.

Who Was Olfert Dapper?
Dapperstraat, the street from which the market takes its name, is named after Olfert Dapper, a 17th-century doctor and writer. Dapper’s book Description of Africa was considered an authoritative text on Africa in its time, despite the fact that he never traveled outside the Netherlands.
Address: Dapperstraat, Amsterdam, Netherlands
