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.
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 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.
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!
