Circling a small park in a square brimming with cafes and small shops, Boxhagener is the Aladdin’s Cave of flea markets. Shaded from the sun under a canopy of trees, the market is not your standard car boot sale. From cat figurines to glass fruit bowls, some stalls are almost reminiscent of your Great Aunt’s front room. However, if you look beyond the boxes of broken dolls and old shoes well past their sell-again state, you may discover some unique finds.
With people young, old, touristy and trendy perusing the sun-streaked tents you feel this a place where anyone and everyone is welcome. Whether you’re on the hunt for a bargain, or have come along purely for the performances from the talented buskers, Boxhagener Flea Market is a place teaming with treasures.
