Lapjesmarkt or Westerstraatmarkt
Lapjesmarkt - Patch Market in English - is a pleasant street market that is held on Monday morning on Westerstraat in the heart of the Jordaan neighborhood. It has over 160 street vendors.
Lapjesmarkt or Westerstraat Market sells all kinds of fabrics, cheap clothes, leather, patches and more general goods
What to buy?
Lapjesmarkt is for lovers of crafts, making clothes and everything you need for this: buttons, poppers, ribbons, yarns, pins, needles. But - more than the name 'Lapjesmarkt' suggests - not only curtain fabric, leather and clothing are sold at the market. You can buy here also cosmetics, new watches, and small interior decoration objects.
Noordermarkt Flea Market
Also on Monday morning a flea market is held at Noordermarkt (Northern Market), adjacent to Westerstraat. This market is a nice place to browse around among, mostly, second-hand stuff like old books, hats, furniture, curiosa, but also unused goods from shop closures.
Westerstraat Market or Lapjesmarkt takes place in Westerstraat between Lijnbaansgracht and Prinsengracht in the Jordaan neighbourhood.
