large street market on Lindengracht in the Jordaan
Lindengracht street market
Lindenmarkt is - with 232 stands - one of the bigger markets in Amsterdam. It is held each Saturday from 9:00 to 16:00 on Lindengracht in the Jordaan neighborhood.
The first market in this street was held in 1894 and it is, more than 120 years later, still a busy and attractive market to see and walk across it.

On Lindengracht and the surrounding neighbourhood are a number of 'hofjes', small courtyards surrounded by almshouses. Some of them, like Lindenhofje (from 1616) and Suykerhofje (from 1667), have their gatehouse facing Lindengracht street. Lindenhofje is not open to the public, but you can still visit Suykerhofje (Lindengracht 149-163) and view its abundantly green courtyard and surrounding charming houses.
Noordermarkt organic farmer's market
Lindengracht used to be a canal, dug at the beginning of the 17th century, during a large city expansion plan. In 1895 it was filled in.
