The Flea Market and Merchant Fair in Haifa

Today I’ll be telling about The Flea Market and Merchant Fair in Haifa. We visited it on Saturday morning. Some sites say that’s the markets are also open on other days, but Saturdays are when most merchants come, so it’s the recommended day of the week for visiting.

Map of the area:

We parked at Kdoshei Bagdad St. and started walking toward the Flea Market.

Flea Market

The Flea Market was recently moved from its previous location due to new construction. It’s no longer located next to the Merchant Fair. Now it’s next to the Sail Tower.

The market is not very big, but if you’re really determined then you will probably find something.

Many of the things are old junk:

Overall I would say that some people love such markets and others hate it. If you’re not sure that you will like it then I’d recommend visiting the Merchant Fair. And that’s the next thing we did.

Merchant Fair

The Merchant Fair is a short walk away (around 10min). You need to pass next to the Sail Tower:

The Merchant Fair starts around 10 Kibbutz Galuyot St and expands to the nearby streets as well.

The Merchant Fair is different from the Flea Market. At the Flea Market you will see individuals selling old stuff but at Merchant Fair, you will find many stores that specialize in collecting and restoring old items. Thus, the variety is bigger and there is less junk.

I realize my age when I start thinking things like: “today’s kids have no idea what is it or how to operate it” 🙂

While visiting the Merchant Fair we saw several cars like this:

No, it’s not a new type of cover. These carpets are for sale. I’m not a specialist but to me, these look like Azerbaijani rugs.

We visited all stands and stores in the Flea Market and Merchant Fair and now it’s time wrap up this post. This whole trip took us a couple of hours, but how much it will take you depends on your interests.

Overall, if you are looking for something unique, old or just love the retro style it is worth visiting both places.

That’s all for today and I’ll see you in future travels!

Stay Tuned!
