Det Grønne Loppemarked (The Green Flea Market) is a relatively new addition to the flea market scene in Copenhagen, Denmark. Its goal is to promote a green community in the heart of Nørrebro by combating the use-and-wear culture. The market takes place up to eight times a year on the square between Jagtvej and Rantzausgade, along the green bike path in Nørrebro.
Unlike a traditional flea market, the Green Flea Market offers more than just charming old objects such as antique painted furniture, lamps, mirrors, Danish ceramics and retro kitchen utensils. The market also offers plant-based foods, organic vegetables, and clothing made with care, promoting a green circular movement. The market organizers are actively working to reduce their carbon footprint. For example, the food stalls offer plant-based foods in compostable packaging. Visitors can meet local, small-scale food producers from Nørrebro who are committed to a diverse and sustainable cultural life. Partners include Klint&Bro, Ishtar, Eat Real Be Real and others.
More than 35,000 guests have supported the circular economy in Nørrebro since the first Det Grønne loppemarked. They have helped to give new life to thousands of old things. The organizers hope that the Green Flea Market will encourage people to throw away less and recycle more. They believe that the market can contribute to a future where people have a more sustainable lifestyle.
The first market of the season is usually held in conjunction with International Workers' Day. This event celebrates food, diversity, culture, social initiatives and sustainable education. The Green Flea Market is a great opportunity to support local producers, reduce waste and meet like-minded people.
