The world-famous Amsterdam flower marketAt the Amsterdam flower market you’ll find tulips of every colour – either in bouquets or as bulbs to plant at home. But the market has far more than just tulips. No matter what your favourite flower, you’re bound to find it here. Besides cut flowers, there are plenty of house plants, seeds and gardening essentials. If you plan to buy bulbs to take out of the country, be sure they have a customs cleared stamp on the packet so you won’t have trouble at the border.
Besides flowers, a number of the shops also sell fun, affordable souvenirs, such as local cheese. In winter, alongside the greenhouse-grown blooms, you’ll also find a large variety of Christmas trees and holiday decorations.
