It's interesting place to visit and you will find bargains but you have to dig through lots of boxes as it's all on floor only the odd table and Part of this is like a bin market Just pure rubbish I think some of the items/stuff comes straight from a council tip 😏 lots of it is just piled high...

I love dirt malls, bric a brac and flea markets so this was heaven. Hundreds of boxes of flea market rubbish with prizes laid out. I learned the hard way though: IF YOU SEE SOMETHING RARE BUY IT STRAIGHT AWAY! I had a rare treasure literally snatched from my hands! Look at my photo to see what to expect...you can... More

A wide range of items can be purchased at these markets. From just your average junk to finding some amazing antiques. Everything is very cheap and if you're not happy with the price you can compromise with the stall owner most of the times. My partner and I picked up some awesome bargains on our way back to Stuttgart and... More

If you are traveling, do you really have room for most of the'stuff' sold here? A great way to spend a few hours but it appeared that all the hidden treasures had been well picked over.

with a small amount of money you can easily refurnish your home making it a hipster place. In this square you can find everything, from beautiful, vintage tea cups, to cloths. the working hours are: week day 6-14, weekend 6-15. make sure to come early in the morning because then you have more choices and nicest things.

Not worth your time. Visited on a Wednesday at noon. Most of the merchandise was junky and uninteresting. Few if any redeeming features.

I went to the plaza at noon and at 7 am the next day. It is indeed better in the morning with nicer finds. What was interesting was that the older sellers had cheaper starting prices than the younger sellers!! (As I look like a tourist!) I did the blank stare, walk away after they gave their counter offer and... More

This place is mostly a junk market, but if you want to experience an old fashioned market this is a place for you. There is a lot of old stuff, but there are also some decent finds if you look hard enough! You need to be ready to bargain. I really couldn't be bothered to rummaging through everything, so we...

Friendly dealers, lots of older items. Many of the same items were spotted in the antique shops along Rue Braes. Loads of fun and one of the few things open early in the morning!
