Amsterdam Dappermarkt (street market) in Top 10 Shopping streets by National Geographic

The Dappermarkt street market, in Amsterdam East, has been placed 8th in the top 10 Shopping Streets by National Geographic Traveler Magazine.

The list is topped by New York's Hell's Kitchen Flea Market and the Plaza Dorrego in Buenos Aires.

The Dappermarket is described as 'off the tourist track' and as a 'true people's market', 'situated right in the middle of Amsterdam's multicultural area'.

The choice for the Dappermarkt is somewhat remarkable, as the Albert Cuyp market is normally listed as the most famous street market in Amsterdam, with the Dappermarkt a good second.

The Dappermarkt is located in Amsterdam East, and is reachable with tram lines 9 or 14.
