Our Locals' Tip: If you're planning to take seeds back home, ensure that they have export certificates. Items like cannabis seeds (Yes, they do sell cannabis seeds here) are a strict no-no.
The Flower Market, or Bloemenmarkt, of Amsterdam, presents a lovely sight. Flowers atop barges, floating upon the serene water are truly a delightful combination of nature's beauty. You can buy flowers, rare ones at that, and also buy seeds of plants that you wouldn't find elsewhere. If you don't feel like making any purchase, why not enjoy a leisurely stroll through the several-hundred meters long market, and immerse yourself in the sights of the exquisite flowers all around.
What will you find on the Flower market
For people who love the smell, colour and overall gorgeousness of flowers, the Flower Market is one place which should definitely not be missed. With florists and garden shops, there's plenty of variety of flowers and florists alike. There are flowers you may have seen before, in colours you would never have imagined. Even for those who aren't remotely interested in flowers or anything flower-related, this is still a great place to visit. Who knows, you might change your mind. Other than that, there's plenty of splash and colour with the dazzling smells luring you from every direction.
Obviously, the Flower Market's piece de resistance is the tulip, which apart from being the flower of Amsterdam, is also available in a plethora of colors. From the common tulip bulbs t the rarer, black, tulip bulbs, there's simple an incredible selection of tulip bulbs available in the Flower Market. There are also other bulbs such as the amaryllis bulb, which is simply huge in size! In addition to that, there are also several potted plants up for sale. Basically the Bloemenmarkt offers you everything flower-related. If you're looking for anything even distantly related to flowers, Bloemenmarkt is the place to go!
