If you are planning a trip to Europe in 2023, we have a few ideas for new things to do, apart from visiting monuments, touring museums, and savoring the local food. For instance, how about dropping by at one (or several) of the best flea markets in Europe? France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Spain are among the most antiques-aware and flea market-friendly locations in the world.
If you would like to explore Europe’s capitals in-depth, then stay for a long weekend and get inspired by one of our 3-day antique shopping itineraries. But enough of the logistics – let’s have a look at the best flea markets in Europe to visit in 2023.
The list above is in random order, as every flea market has its own, distinct character and choice of merchandise. Some of the flea markets we picked for 2023 are mega flea markets, held only once or twice a year. Others are weekly flea markets. We also could not help but include a few markets off the beaten track, in rural areas in the south of France and Italy. What better way to explore Europe than by visiting its flea markets!
