    Food Village: Schiphol Supermarket

    Food Village - Schiphol

    I recommend a visit to the Food Village Supermarket if you need a bottle of water and some snacks for your next leg of your journey in the Netherlands.

    Until you arrive at the Amsterdam Central Station (or any other Dutch destination) you may not encounter any similar shop or opportunity to by food and drinks.

    What to buy: Just what you need for the next 8 hours for food & drinks.

    Planes@Plaza

    After the famous "World of Wings" shop closed its doors at Schiphol in 2006, there still was demand for a shop with plane relates goodies. Of course, the Luchtvaart Hobby Shop at Aalsmeerderbrug still is in the neighbourhood, but not at walking distance.

    Planes@Plaza replaces World of Wings for just a small part. The store is built around a DC-9 cockpit and cabin.

    Opening hours
    Daily: 7AM - 10PM

    At the Communication Centre in the tax-free zone you can drop your normal mail and use the phone/fax/internet services.

    There also are mailboxes in the transfer area; directy after the passport check at the outer wall.

    See Buy Fly: Last minute shopping??

    by cinthya_in_victoria Written Dec 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    magnets

    Before making the conection to my final destination, I had to buy some local souvenirs at the speed of light. In this amazing airport you will find shops of almost everything you can imagine but I suggest you to buy in See Buy Fly shop. It has a lot of stuff to choose from to take home and there's one located very near from the gates. Prices were a little high but it was very convenient for me as I'm not sure when I'll go to Holland to visit!

    What to buy: Cheese, magnets, windmills, tulips.. etc!

    What to pay: as much as you want, but it is expensive.

    Schiphol and near by area: Shopping In Schiphol

    by Robin922 Written May 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Schiphol being an industrial area, you won’t find any malls, grocery stores and such. However you can do your shopping relatively easy.

    If you just need a couple of small items, Schiphol Plaza (the airport) is your best bet. The prices are a little higher than other local stores, however there is something to be said for convenience. Also the store hours there are much longer than in other places.

    If you are wanting to do some more serious shopping, but not wanting to go to Amsterdam, you can easily hop the local bus to one of the near by towns. Hoofddorp is close, and offers most any type of shop you would want. There of course several other towns in the near by area.

  • Food Village: Airport Supermarket

    Schiphol

    There's a supermarket inside Schiphol Plaza which is the entrance hall to the airport. You will get everything you need there (and it is open daily until midnight!!!). We used this when staying in a hotel in Schiphol to get drinks and sandwiches for the day in Amsterdam.

    What to buy: There's not only Dutch stuff on offer here but Asian and American food as well.

    What to pay: More than in your average supermarket. You're in an airport, remember? ;)

    Taxfree or travel-shopping: Schiphol, a (wealthy) shopper's paradise

    by Pavlik_NL Written Aug 24, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shopping in a busy, international environment

    Schiphol, if you are going to travel or not ... in front and behind the custom's service it's one huge shopping-mall. With a great variety in shops that offer a wide range of products, a true shopper's paradise. However, the shopper should bring quite some cash as the prices here are higher then in the average town in The Netherlands. Even the taxfree-prices are sometimes unreasonable high.
