Flowers, Bloemenmarket

The Bloemenmarkt, as Amsterdam's flower market is called, may no longer be floating nor the best place to buy bulbs yet it's a colorful place to while away an hour and fun spot to shop for souvenirs. Established in 1862 and located on one of Amsterdam's oldest canals, this once floating flower market is the best-known in Holland. The covered stalls on permanently moored barges sell blooms, bulbs and plants as well as t-shirts, magnets, postcards, and clog-shaped slippers. The cut flowers are reasonably priced. The bulbs are cheap but the quality is poor. What's more, the content doesn't always reflect the package.
