Flea Markets in Krakow

There are a couple of flea markets in town that are worth stopping by.  If you aren’t here on a Sunday, then check the Plac Nowy in Kazimierz, almost any day of the week, for some fun finds (best on Saturday and Sunday).  And if you are here on a Sunday, then look no further than Hala Targowa!  Below is a more detailed description of these two markets…


Hala Targowa

Held every Sunday morning, this is our favorite flea market! Complete with all the town drunks selling their things very cheaply so they can buy another bottle of vodka.  We go every Sunday and have been lucky to get some great finds!  Be careful, as it can be quite crowded.  You will find people with their things laid on the ground, these are always the cheapest.  If a table looks well organized, the person knows what his/her stuff is worth so expect a higher price tag.  Most stands have used goods and antiques; however a few sell produce, spices, and other handmade items.  Take Tram 50 to the stop Hala Targowa, and follow the crowds of people.  Going to be in Krakow for a while?  This is a great market to find a bicycle to use for your stay!

The Market at Plac Nowy

This market has people selling new things, and it has people selling old things, amongst produce and handmade crafts.  There are a few stalls open every day; and all the stalls come alive on Saturday and Sunday.  If you are looking for jewelry or vintage clothes, this market is better than the others, but we find the prices to be higher and the sellers to be less drunk.  Find it on any map, in the middle of Kazimierz, the Jewish District, closest tram stop is Miodowa.

      I dont think I have the knowledge or the ability to help you. I do not speak Polish, and I am not familiar with much outside of daily life and tourist information. But good luck with everything!
