It's 1 street and it has stands on both sides all along that 1 street. They had all the flowers that Amsterdam is known for. Lovely walk.

We saw flowers market really impressive elsewhere. Two years ago we purchased here 2 bags with black tulip bulbs that we offered as gift to our friends. Which have flourished PINK tulips.

It was amazing! I am big fan on tulips and here I got to see a lot of them. There were all kinds of flowers and seeds. It was a wonderful view and close to the city center.

Not somethong special, but it is good to have a walk. Mainly tourist place, where you can find a big variety of tulips (flowers and seeds) in great prices. There are also souvenirs.

Most of the bulbs are over-priced and in not good quality. You'd be better off going to a proper garden shops further away from the touristic areas. Even Horrenbach has better selection of bulbs.

I have never seen so many tulip bulbs in my life. This is a real pretty and colorful walk. Go check it out even if you're not interested in flowers. It's a neat little walk. Plenty of shopping and food near by.

The flower market as you expect is full of flowers of every kind. It's a place full of color and you can really find every kind of flower you want. But the flower market isn't just this there are also seeds and souvenir.

I love markets, but this is a mini one. There are many flowers here, lots of gifts, but everywhere the same giftideas (with the same price). Buy some tulip onions to have a real 'duch' gift. Oposide the market there are some shops for cheese, go and try some of them. Usually they have samples or tasting boxes.

Just a casual walk along the street and through the shops of the Blumenmarket is a great thing. Beautiful flowers, souvenirs and tulip bulbs and other seeds along one of Amsterdam's famed canals. It only takes an hour to enjoy the walk, the beauty and the people of this free attraction. This is not a typical tourist thing. It is... More

You can buy almost every typical Dutch flower in here. Don't go to the first shop from the main street as it seems to me that it is the most expensive one. Flowers looks good, we buyed around 100 tulips, we will see what will grow up next year.
