Waterlooplein History

The current waterlooplein was once the Centre of the old Jewish quarter of Amsterdam. In the 17th century both Portuguese and German Jewish immigrants settled here. Since then the neighborhood knows a lively street trade, especially since Jews couldn't own a shop. In 1882 after some of the canals had been filled in, the street market was held on the new city square of Waterlooplein. Stallholders who came from elsewhere were at first furious about the compulsory move. They complained that too few buyers would come and the spot was too windy. But despite that the waterlooplein market became a popular market.
