Welcome to the website of De Avondmarkt, one of the largest night supermarkets of Amsterdam. De Avondmarkt was founded on April 12, 1969 by Theo and Mary Huipen and has been opened every day since. Hans van Akkeren joined in 1979 and is the current owner. This means that we celebrate our 50 year anniversary this year! We are planning festivities during the whole month of April to celebrate this milestone.
The store is open until midnight every day of the year, except for the holidays: the store is –off course- open on holidays, but only until 8 or 10 pm. De Avondmarkt is located in the Staatsliedenbuurt, near the Westerpark.
De Avondmarkt is not only a night shop, where you would go for some beers, a late night snack or toilet paper. It is a night shop, supermarket, organic shop and deli combined in a 400 meter square store.
We bake the bread, slice the meats and cheese, make the salads, and bake the nuts ourselves. Every day. We have over 200 varieties of beer, mostly Dutch and Belgian beers. And maybe even more wine, for every budget, but always great value for money. We also carry a lot of different soda’s, not only coke, but different (partly organic) brands in extraordinary and delicious flavours.
