The monthly IJ-hallen is the best flea market in Amsterdam!
Do you like to hunt for fleas and treasures? Then go to the IJ-hallen flea market in Amsterdam North. The monthly held IJ-hallen is by far the best flea market in Amsterdam and I think even in The Netherlands. More than 800 vendors sell vintage, clothes and everything else they have no need for anymore. Every first weekend of the month the IJ-hallen flea market in Amsterdam is open on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am. Go early for the best gems and if you don’t mind to pay a bit more. Go after 3 pm if you’re looking for real small prices.
Over the years I have been a vendor at the IJ-hallen myself many times. I think clothes are the best money maker! Last time I sold so much that I’m going to buy a new designer bag with the money. if you’re going to check out the IJ-hallen a great place to go for drinks afterwards is PLLEK. The IJ-hallen flea market in Amsterdam itself is all about the fleas, so don’t expect delicious food trucks like they have a Smorgasburg in New York ;-).
