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.
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.
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.
The Sail Tower and the port:
That’s all for today. If you like flea markets then check out Jaffa flea market post.
