Central to this neighbourhood is Dapperstraat, with a market open from Monday to Saturday.
Bustling from early till late
The Dappermarkt is the centrepiece of the neighbourhood, and has been voted the best market in the country. It’s no wonder, then, that it’s the most famous and busiest market in Amsterdam, along with the Albert Cuypmarkt. At the bustling stalls, you can find all kinds of products, from fresh vegetables and fruits to exotic snacks.

Dapperbuurt is known for its colourful facades and cultural diversity. Many different groups come together and live here. The neighbourhood is particularly popular among young Amsterdammers, which is evident when you walk around the area. While the neighbourhood was predominantly social housing in the late 1980s, it is now very diverse thanks to a healthy mix of rental and owner-occupied homes. The stately classical buildings on one side of Dapperstraat and the social housing on the other side provide a unique and remarkable view. It’s beautiful to see how this diversity attracts a wide variety of people to the neighbourhood.
Did you know that artist Karel Appel once lived in Dapperbuurt? He was born in 1921, as the son of a barber, on Pieter Vlamingstraat.
