10 unbelievable places around the world to host a flea market

In a Stadium (various locations around the world)

What do the Rose Bowl Flea Market (Pasadena, CA), the Aloha Stadium Saturday Flea Market, (Honolulu, HI), and the Flea Market at Nissan Stadium in Shin-Yokohama (Yokohama, Japan) all have in common? Well, surely not Lauhala or Aloha Shirts…

Those three flea markets are some of the most well known swap meet that take place inside (or nearby) a stadium. Just like it is the case with horse-race tracks when they’re not used for their main purpose, stadiums make for great flea market locations when there’s no game.

And it’s easy to understand why a stadium is sometimes a good fit for event of such proportions: with more than 2,500 stalls and 20,000 bargain hunters who gather each month, the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena is a truly gigantic event. It’s true that it does not equals the “epic” attendance of the Grande Braderie de Lille in France (10,000 vendors, 2 million visitors) or the Münchner Flohmarkt auf der Theresienwiese (3,000 stalls, 80,000 visitors), but after all these events only occur once a year, while Stadium flea markets usually happen every month. But that’s another story.
