Amsterdam South has its famous Albert Cuyp markt, West has its ten Kate markt, and East has its Dappermarkt. These markets are open 6 days per week (closed sunday) from 0900-1800. On Dappermarkt you will find over 200 stalls, but behind these stalls the small specialists shops are no less interesting. Diehards could also walk into the ethnic retail of van Swindensstraat and next into the Javastraat. The latter being a great street for small Arabic shops. You will like this.
