Flea Markets and Popular Terms Defined

Millions of people flock to flea markets every year in order to find clothes, jewelry, home furnishings, antiques, and other merchandise. These busy markets are typically found outdoors in booths and under tents. Similar to a swap meet, flea markets allow people to find secondhand goods that may be difficult to locate in common retail stores. Nowadays there are online directory websites that assist you with finding local flea markets. Take a look at the key terms found below to improve your understanding of these markets.

  • Tianguis – These are open-air markets that can be found in Mexican cities and towns. They are typically held on specific days, and draw in countless individuals and families looking for artwork, agriculture supplies, handmade jewelry, and food products.
  • Bazaar – A type of street market that sells and trades goods and services. These are commonly found in regions like Poland, Albania, Persia, Istanbul, and India. Bazaars offer a wide array of specialty foods, clothing, rugs, and craft items.
  • Pasar Malam – This is a night market that is often found in Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Unlike most flea markets, it generally opens for business in the evening, and is typically located in residential neighborhoods. Some common merchandise sold are fruits, shoes, ornaments, incense, and prayer supplies.
  • Swap Meet – A gathering for collectors and enthusiasts. Swap meets are often held for people to exchange or trade certain collectibles. This can include computer software, toys, antiques, and car parts. Online directory sites can help you find swap meet times and dates.
  • Farmers’ Market – This is an indoor or outdoor market that allows for local farmers and vendors to set up booths and sell produce, meats, and prepared foods. Many people shop at farmers’ markets to get organic products at bargain prices.

    Looking for a great bargain? Look no further than your local flea market. A flea market is an open-air street market where used merchandise like antiques, knock-off brand purses and clothing, electronics, and trinkets are sold. If you don't mind pawing through tables of items in your search for the perfect deal, a flea market is probably for you. Also called bazaars, flea markets can also be held indoors within a warehouse. People can scout out the deals each and every weekend, and sometimes during the week. Stalls and vendors abound, ready to sell to and haggle with anyone who has a good offer. People who enjoy frequenting flea markets also enjoy heading to outdoor yard and garage sales as well. Mostly, it's all cheap stuff, but sometimes you will find a steal, such as an antique doll, or a great piece of furniture you can fix up for your home. Most flea market merchants take cash only, but some accept credit cards. Whether out on the street or indoors, chances are there's a flea market in your community. Details may be posted online, or in the local paper. You'll often find flea markets, swap meets, and bazaars at carnivals, parks, or other community events. Inexpensive items may include second hand clothing, toys, books, bootleg DVDs, and other special goods. Expensive items may include cars, guns, radios, and TVs. Many times, counterfeit goods are up for sale on the black market, with cheap price tags. Because flea markets and swap meets may be located in inner cities or other unsafe areas, bribes and black market dealings may be the norm. Shoppers should beware purchasing counterfeit or cheap quality goods. Generally, no exchanges or returns are allowed after initial purchase from vendors.
