Maastricht is a city of markets. If you visit Maastricht, it is inevitable that you will pass a market, where you will surely be tempted to browse the endless supply of wares, antique furniture and fresh food products. We provide you with a glimpse of the best markets of Maastricht here.

Maastricht Market

The best-known market in Maastricht is the one held on the square of the same name, Markt. Surrounding by stately mansions and the imposing city hall, Maastricht’s main market is set up here every Wednesday and Friday. You can buy nearly anything at the stalls, from plants, flowers and clothes to cosmetics, food and fresh produce.

The Wednesday market is relatively small, with 200 stalls, and with the addition of the fish market on Fridays, the Markt in Maastricht offers shoppers a selection from 300 stalls. The market is open on both days from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Maastricht Organic Market

Two days a week, the Stationsstraat in Maastricht is taken over by a market. Between 2:00 and 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays, the organic “Boeremerret Limburg” market sells sustainable, local and handcrafted products, as well as organic bread, fruit, vegetables and meats.

Flea Market of Maastricht

Saturday, the Stationsstraat becomes the backdrop for the Maastricht flea market. This flea market is a cross between a serious antique market and one offering curiosa. For collectors and “window-shoppers”, it is a great market for poking through boxes of old books, gramophone records, shopping for antique furniture and lamps, and countless peculiar knick-knacks. The Maastricht flea market is open between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
