The great thing about shopping in Maastricht is that you can find all the big brands there, as well as many distinctly original shops, many of which are along pedestrian-only streets. That means there is always a choice of cafes and restaurants with pleasant outdoor terraces nearby, where you can give your feet a rest while sipping a cup of tea and enjoying some local specialties. 

 

The different districts each have their own character and specialties when it comes to shopping:

 

  • In the trendy Wyck District you’ll find fashion, antiques and arts shops, as well as interior design. The main shopping streets are Stationsstraat and Wyckerbrugstraat.
  • The Jeker District will surely impress art lovers with its arts and antiques shops, which are intermingled with lots of restaurants and delicatessens with local specialties like Limburg mustard, ginger cake, or Mestreechter Geiskes (chocolates). You’ll also find various gold- and silversmiths here.
  • The Stokstraat Quarter is the most exclusive shopping area of Maastricht. It offers all the big brand names. At the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Square nearby you can refuel at one of the many great outdoor terraces.
  • You’ll find many shops in the streets around the Vrijthof Square, whether you’re looking for lingerie, shoes or fashion. The main shopping streets in this area are the Grote Staat and the Kleine Staat and the Maastrichtse Brugstraat.
  • Between the Market and the Meuse River you’ll find two modern indoor shopping centres, Mosae Forum and Entre Deux, and along the many streets between the Markt and the Grote Staat you’ll find many more fashion stores.

 

Markets:

 

  • At Market Square there’s a general produce market on Wednesdays. On Fridays, from 9 am to 3 pm there’s a market for general goods and produce, fabrics and fish.
  • On Thursdays, between 2 and 6:30 pm, at the Stationsstraat, there’s an organic farmers’ market where you can buy regional products from the province of Limburg. Also at the Stationsstraat there’s a flea market every Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.
