Brunswick Flea Market

With over 40 stalls and various discount stores,Brunswick Flea Market offers enough choice to spend a whole day sifting through stacks of curiosities

Taking its cues from the famed Brooklyn Flea Market, a few Brunswick go-getters have set up their own retail community in the car park outside Howler. The result is a huge and finely selected assortment of retro-clothes, collectibles and vintage furniture in seemingly endless quantity. With over 40 stalls and various discount stores, Brunswick Flea Market offers enough choice to spend a whole day sifting through stacks of curiosities.

Cheaper than most areas of Melbourne, Brunswick Flea Market is the place to be if you’re looking for a bargain. As one of Melbourne’s newest flea markets with engaging stallholders selling everything from vintage and handmade clothes, jewelry and original art-work, Brunswick Flea Market is largely considered one of the best markets by hipsters – and they certainly know! Boasting both new and pre-loved wares, this market features everything from edible treats to old school vinyl beats.

In the prominent center of Brunswick, you will also find an army of second hand shops with heaps of new stuff coming in daily. There is also a massive Savers – the famous mother of all Melbourne Op‘s (Aussie slang for “opportunity shop”). Many of these outlets are located at The Sydney Road, where the lure of diverse and the colourful shops will most certainly arouse your curiosity and can’t be overlooked. Just opposite Savers is a recycle shop called Scavengers, which is definitely worth a visit with its gripping selection of clothes, ornaments and various other oddities.

Treasure hunting never loses its lure and visiting Brunswick Flea Market is one of those mini adventures, where it is all about discovering your own personal gem. Take your time to rummage through the piles of clothes, colourful shoes and iconic bags. It’s possible to redecorate a large hotel with the extensive array of quirky lamps, antique furniture and eye-catching, original art work on display. With so much on offer, you will almost guaranteed find something you love.

The countless independent shops, the huge variety of restaurants and cafes and a wide selection of bars present add a vibrancy to the Brunswick Flea Market un-akin to any other. Beer and music lovers will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at The Penny Black on a Saturday night and can enjoy the great selection of drinks of The Brunswick Green with its exotic beer garden.

And do not miss the Howler! The multi-functional, multifaceted arts hub and bar is a smart concept space hidden within a Brunswick warehouse that encapsulates all that is good about design, music, theatre, cinema, art and a unique night out. This enormous space that bears the marks of creativity and functionality, is the perfect setting for an unforgettable flea market experience.

With the plan to eventually house a theater, gallery and a performance space, Brunswick Flea Markets is certainly on top of Melbourne’s fun-things-to-do-list.

"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."
