What better way to spend a Sunday than meeting up with friends, grabbing a coffee and then going hunting for cool objects such as additions to your wardrobe, additions to your apartment or little fun knick knacks you feel like you need? We’ve compiled a list of five flea markets that are suitable for just that!
I am a huge fan of flea markets. There are several reasons that I love them. I actually use them both to sell my own stuff once or twice a year, and to find additions to my closet and apartment. My best friend agrees, and instead of always meeting at a café, we go shopping to a flea market on the weekends during the spring.
Shopping at flea markets is a great way to find something a little more special than what you can normally find in H&M. It is also a sustainable way of shopping. That is, if you must go shopping in the first place. By going from flea market to flea market, I’ve found the cutest vintage summer dresses, expensive winter jackets and boots, ice skates, flower vases, and even a couch for my apartment.
Every Saturday, the parking lot behind the Frederiksberg City Hall (which is located very close to CBS), turns into a flea market where you can get a good bargain. Different private vendors sell everything from antiquities to cool clothes.
Where: Behind Frederiksberg City Hall, Smallegade 1, 2000 Frederiksberg
When: Saturdays from 9am-3pm, from April-October.
North of Copenhagen, in Gentofte, you’ll find one of the most popular flea markets due to the fact that it is possible to get a great bargain here. There are a lot of high end clothing brands sold at low prices. If you are a good bargain hunter, this is a flea market for you. Besides clothing, you can also find antiques, furniture, toys, and books.
Where: Bregnegård 2, 2920 Charlottenlund, right by Charlottenlund Station
When: Every Sunday from 8am-2pm from April-October.
This flea market is a local favorite, which actually runs all year round. It is a great place to find cute, special things for your home such as candle holders, retro knick knacks, art, furniture, clothing, shoes, accessories, and books.
Where: Nattergalevej 6, 2400 Copenhagen
When: Saturdays from 10am-3pm (however, closed throughout all of July)
