I had no idea that Amsterdam had such a wonderful flower market area on Singel and when I turned in to it I was pleasantly surprised at the sheer high standard of the flowers and plants on offer. It is possible to have bulbs sent home too from you Holland holiday to your home address and I may well do this on another visit.
What to buy: There`s much more than just flowers here, with all kinds of souvenirs available as well. Holland seems to have the perfect weather for flowers, and in it`s in April that those tulip fields blossom, the ones we`re used to seeing in postcards.
Flowers in bloom! The Dutch are experts not only at Tulips but at numerous other blooming tubers as well. You'll find color and life in the Flower Market at any time of year. We were there in the first week of March, and found a rainbow of earthly delights.
At the Floating Flower market you can buy fresh flowers but also tulip bulbs, qualified to export.
In recent years most shops are selling more and more souvenirs in stead of flowers.
What to buy: Flowers
What to pay: Euro 15
.......Amsterdam!! Where else?
Seen here on the Flower Market, by the bucket load – unusual colours and very reasonably priced – they should be really – they grow millions per year!
