Leidensplein ( Light square ) has quite a handful knickknack sellers. Looks great but I am not sure if they were worth buying.. But then again from the looks of it, I think it would have been cheaper than other places with some bargaining.
In the Spui square on Saturdays there are artists who set up booths to sell their wares be they art paintings, photography, statues and more----most speak a little english and will be glad to talk to you if you stop to look...
What to buy: paintings, photos
What to pay: good prices
What to buy: If you want to buy some cheese from amsterdam, my personal opinion is to buy them from the markets or cheese shops rather than at the touristy cheese factories or cheese market. The cheese shops can vacuum wrap the cheese for you as well.
The Lindengracht street market is the more regular part of the Noordermarkt street market.
You'll find anything from Flowers, fresh fish, vegetables, Bread, drinks, clothing and household goods.
Many tourists these days come to the Albert Cuijp market. But I like the Dappermarkt much better.
What to buy: anything you like.
What to pay: Not much
