The first snowflakes generally mean the end of the season for open air flea markets, particularly in northern Europe/US/Canada where winter is no joke. However, for those who are used to it, like in Norway, a “little bit of snow” is not a deterrent to selling at the flea market. Far from it.
Birkelunden (“The Birch Grove” in Norwegian) is a relatively large park located at the top of the Grünerløkka district in Oslo, where a flea market is held almost every Sunday from January ’til December (that’s 11 months out of 12…). People meet up at the Birkelunden flea marketto sell and buy vintage clothing, costume jewelry and antique furniture, or simply to chat while drinking a cup of coffee and walking their dog through the park.
