The Netherlands is a country that loves its markets, and Maastricht is no exception to the rule. No wonder why it has become a city that tops the lists for flea market aficionados and bargain hunters alike!
Locally known as the city of markets, Maastricht hosts a different market almost every day of the week. From its main market which is surrounded by stately mansions and the imposing city hall, to the organic “Boeremerret Limburg” market that sells sustainable, local and handcrafted products, Maastricht provides an almost endless supply of fresh food products, wares, and of course, antique furniture.
Once a week, the Stationsstraat becomes the backdrop for the Maastricht Saturday flea market. Set close to the city centre and easily accessible by foot or by tram, Maastricht Saturday flea market is a cross between a serious antique market and one offering curiosa. The nearby streets, which are already busy with traffic any other day of the week, becomes exceptionally crowded each Saturday for the flea market. Therefore, browsers need to come with patience and be ready to face the crowd!
