The Antique Flea Market in Sokolniki (Антикварная Барахолка в Сокольниках) is the perfect place for those that want it all on a Saturday – great antiques, shopping for bargains, and enjoying a walk in nature. The Sokolniki Park in Moscow may not be well known in terms of tourist attractions but it’s a beautiful area in its own right, so of course, adding some quality vintage and collectible buying opportunities just makes it all the more perfect a location for a visit!
When visiting the park on a Saturday, it will be impossible to miss the Antique Flea Market in Sokolniki. The main area for the vendors to set up is close to the main entrance gates, so even those that visit the park without the intention of shopping will find it hard to bypass the wonderful collectibles here without at least browsing through, if not picking up a few bargains. Close by to the flea market is a huge playground and a family cafe, therefore the whole family can enjoy a morning or even most of the day here.
Since the Antique Flea Market in Sokolniki is not really on the tourist map, it makes for a more authentic collection of vintage and antique goods that truly reflect periods of Russian history. Items found here are not going to easily come across in the rest of the city of Moscow, so shoppers are in for some really unique oddities and collectibles. Among the wares found here are household items, interior items, vintage clothes, antique toys, vintage jewelry, books, magazines, comics, porcelain, glass, souvenirs, and gifts.
Though the Antique Flea Market in Sokolniki is a weekly event, shoppers never know what they might find here. Many vendors are regulars but there are always new stalls being set up each time the markets opens, so fresh vintage and collectible antiques are constantly up for grabs.
