Have you ever been to one of Auckland’s Flea Markets? If you haven’t, take a step down to one. Flea markets are great whether you are looking for unique treasures, or simply wanting to set up your own market stall with unique finds when cleaning out the garage, selling something you have sewn, crafted, built, painted, or grown.
Why not have a morning trip out to either to set up your our stall or to discover what you might find at one of the five Flea Markets that we have listed below.
1. Avondale Antique and Collectors Fair
Location: Avondale Racecourse- 90 Ash St, Avondale
Avondale Antique And Collectors Fair is a monthly fair held inside the race building at the Avondale Racecourse on the first Saturday and following Sunday of every month. This is New Zealand’s biggest antique gathering, and a must for antique collectors, traders, or those who just enjoy seeing different unique treasures.
The Sunday coincides with the Sunday markets, which is New Zealand’s biggest one day market known for its multicultural food and produce. Online and out-of-Auckland antique dealers are welcome, but there is also a whole indoor floor filled full of unsuspecting treasures just waiting to be discovered. First-timers should come on a Saturday when things are a little less manic.
