Except the pleasure of bargaining and finding real treasures at affordable prices, flea markets offer the opportunity of meeting with tradition and culture. By wandering through the city’s market places, you discover a side of Amsterdam that you can’t find in a museum - a living part. You see its cultural heritage live, not merely observing it through a window. And the trader in you will not leave unsatisfied either! Before making your way in a flea market, the no. 1 rule you should always stick to is take care of your possessions. This doesn’t involve just Amsterdam, but every market in the world, as it could shelter pickpockets, small time thieves and crooks. If you keep that in mind, everything’s cool and your haggle can begin. From everlasting, bargaining has defined markets and is an activity enjoyed by both buyer and shopkeeper.
