Showcasing a pretty decent variety of interesting objects and second-hand furniture, this Milan antiques market has many collector’s items to offer at reasonable prices. As it is the case with most flea markets, visitors will make the most of the Mercato di Abbiategrasso Flea Market by showing up early, before it gets to busy (and this is also a great time to spot bargains before they are snapped up).

Cormano Flea Market

Cormano, Saturday 7:30 – 14:00

Flea Market Milan

You need to be an early bird for the flea market at Cormano, near Milan. It starts at 7.30am every Saturday and is over by lunchtime (2pm). If you want a real bargain – and have comfortable walking shoes – you should find plenty of things to tempt you among the 150 stalls.

The area is famous for silk – Como produces 80% of Europe’s silk and has been doing so since the 14th century – and visitors can always find some lovely fabrics among the household goods, toys, old clothes, glass and silver.

    having Paris,
    Clignancourt market on this list is a grave error, which makes the authority of
    this list highly questionable.

    • Hi Lora, thanks for your comment! Paris Clignancourt is indeed one flea market that always makes it top of our “Best Flea Markets” listings; it has been thoroughly featured year on year in other of our reviews like “20 Best Flea Markets in France” (https://www.fleamarketinsiders.com/best-flea-markets-in-france/) or “Flea Markets you must visit in Europe in 2014″ (https://www.fleamarketinsiders.com/top-15-mega-flea-markets-you-must-visit-in-2013/).

      However, the review “Europe’s Best Summer Destinations 2014″ is specifically dedicated to the 20 selected towns that competed for the prestigious title of Best European Destination 2014. And Paris was unfortunately not part of the winning cities this year :( The 20 winning cities were elected by hundreds of major tourism offices in Europe and thousands of community managers of social networks and voters. But we hope it will be part of this ranking in 2015!

    We just wasted hours this last Saturday looking for the Flea Market on Via Fiori Chiari in Milan, only to discover that for the last TWO YEARS it has been held on the 3rd Sunday, not Saturday. It is now almost entirely vintage clothes and jewelry. Some interesting old decorative items from India and Africa for the home, some old posters and ads, but mainly clothing, purses, jewelry.

    Hello can you please give me an address for the fleamarket Cormano close to Milan, i checked the web site … i dont see an address.

  5. Blessing Adeeko

    Hey, can you give me more details on the Vandoma flea market in Porto? I went near the cathedral this morning but there was no flea market to be found. does it still happen every Saturday?

    • Hi Sabrina, which city/cities are you planning to visit in January/February? In Europe, most weekend flea markets operate year round (they sometimes close the week between Christmas and New Year’s eve); so they should be running in January and February.
      Remember to check the opening days, as while some flea markets operate every weekend, others only operate twice a month or only once a month.

      • Sabrina Huang

        Thank you for the responses. I am going to Milan and Venice from 1/21-2/2. I am interested in flea market, antique market, open farmer’s market or old furniture market, etc. I have two weekends (1/23-24, 30-31) so hopefully I will be lucky enough to go to one of the market.
