Within the Hanseatic League, Deventer played an important role. Deventer rightly claims to be a welcoming shopping city. Both the large chains and specialised stores are represented, leading to a widely diverse collection of, among others, antiques, wooden toys, arts and crafts, souvenirs, interior design, florists and religious items. And who could forget the annual Deventer Book Fair? This fair is a large annual event that stretches over 6 kilometres, held on the first Sunday in August, drawing in crowds from all over the country. Where to Shop? Best shopping streets are the Grote & Kleine Overstraat, Spijkerboorsteeg and the Walstraat. Have a look at the selection we made for you.
