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 is when most merchants come, so it’s the recommended day of week for visiting.

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

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

Overall I’d 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.

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

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 on 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 has no idea what is it or how to operate it” 🙂

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

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