Lapjesmarkt or Westerstraatmarkt

Lapjesmarkt - Patch Market in English - is a friendly street market that is held on Monday morning on Westerstraat in the heart of the Jordaan. It has a cosy neighbourhood atmosphere.

Westerstraat used to be a canal (the filled-in Anjeliersgracht), dug at the beginning of the 17th century, during a large city expansion plan. In 1861 it was filled in to create room for traffic.

What to buy?

Lapjesmarkt vendors are selling small articles used in sewing: buttons, zips, thread, poppers, ribbons, yarns, pins, needles.

But - more than the name 'Lapjesmarkt' suggests - not only curtain fabric, leather and clothing are sold at the market. You can buy here also cosmetics, new watches, and small interior decoration objects.

Noordermarkt Flea Market

Also on Monday morning a flea market is held at Noordermarkt, adjacent to Westerstraat. This market is a nice place to browse around among, mostly, second-hand stuff like old books, hats, furniture, curiosa, but also unused goods from shop closures.


Lapjesmarkt is situated on Westerstraat, a former canal, between Lijnbaansgracht and Prinsengracht in the Jordaan neighbourhood.
