IJ-HALLEN EUROPE's BIGGEST FLEA MARKET: A place beyond belief. Huge flea market in abandoned warehouse in Amsterdam North.
I must confess that I am very partial to a bargain (who isn't, right?). It goes without say, therefore, that I absolutely love markets, to the horror of my partner, who absolutely hates them.
Amsterdam has no shortage of markets, ranging from the most popular market the Albert Cuypmarkt, organic food markets on Noordermarkt and Nieuwmarkt on Saturdays, to the best known flea-market on Waterlooplein, weekly on Monday-Saturday.
These markets are all great, but rather small and pedestrian when compared to the mammoth IJ-Hallen.
