Waterlooplein Flea Market

Top choice market in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

Covering the square once known as Vlooienburg (Flea Town), the Waterlooplein Flea Market draws bargain hunters seeking everything from antique knick-knacks to vintage leather coats. The street market started in 1880 when Jewish traders living in the neighbourhood began selling their wares here. During the Nazi occupation Jews were rounded up here before being sent away to camps.
