For some hustle and bustle and an array of artisan products, Amersfoort offers a variety of markets. On Friday mornings, there’s a flower market on Lieve Vrouwekerkhof, a fish market on Groenmarkt and a goods market with well over 120 stalls on Hof Square. Up to 5 pm, there’s a farmer’s market on Eem Square. All day every Saturday, there’s a big weekly market on Hof Square, and every first Saturday of the month, there’s a lively second-hand market on Lieve Vrouwekerkhof.


Amersfoort's historical city centre is filled with big brand stores as well as many independent shops. The shops are generally open 7 days a week. Opening hours vary per shop, but here are a few guidelines: Monday 1 pm – 6 pm Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday 9 am – 6 pm Thursday 9 am – 9 pm Saturday 9 am – 5 pm Sunday noon – 5 pm
