Antiek- en Curiosamarkt Apeldoorn is the largest market of its kind in the Netherlands and is a household name in its country and far beyond! This popular flea market takes place three times during the summer (in July and August) and is always a busy affair. It is a highly anticipated event and vendors bring a wide selection of different vintage and antique items for the visitors to admire. Strolling through the many stalls at this market is the ideal opportunity to indulge in a little nostalgia and perhaps pick up a memento or two of the past.

Distinctive red and white roofs top the market stalls at Antiek- en Curiosamarkt Apeldoorn. Therefore, it is impossible to mix up this wonderful flea with any other. The many stalls are uniformly arranged in a large, open paved space in the central marketplace of the town, making it very easy to walk your way up and down each row of vendors, guaranteeing that you will not miss anything. It can get a little crowded in these rows, especially as there are so many treasures to see both left and right as you walk down, so it may be best to arrive as early as possible on these rare market days. Of course, this flea market is best enjoyed when the weather is fine, but each and every stall is covered so a slight shower is no hindrance to the treasure hunt.

The vendors at Antiek- en Curiosamarkt Apeldoorn are an eclectic mix; some are professional dealers, others are passionate collectors themselves, and then there are those who have recently emptied their attics and have it all laid out for visitors to behold. It is possible to buy crockery, toys, small items of furniture, clocks, garden decorations, books, vinyl records, and many other trinkets and decorative items from years gone by. At various strategic locations spread through the market, there are stands offering refreshments, so you can keep your energy topped up for the bargaining!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
