If you don't want to worry about the weather ruining your treasure hunt, METAMarkt in Vienna, Austria is the flea market for you. It takes place in an old factory that is now used as an event space. Sometimes it hosts concerts, sometimes yoga sessions, and every weekend it hosts a fantastic flea market. From the outside, you might think this is just an abandoned building, but inside its brick walls is a huge space with four event halls, more than enough room for a bustling market.
For many years, the METAMarkt was held only on Sundays. However, it has recently expanded its hours and is now open on both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday is still the busiest day, with nearly 100 vendors. But for shopping, both days are equally satisfying! There is no limit to the number of vendors participating each weekend, and it's not possible to reserve your spot here - the organizers simply encourage you to show up on the day. There is plenty of space throughout the building, so there is always room to set up another booth.
METAMarkt always attracts a wide variety of vendors, and there are new and different booths every weekend. Visitors can never be sure what they will find. Collectors are often pleasantly surprised by the unusual items on display, which can include furniture, lighting, china, movie memorabilia, collectibles, chandeliers, religious iconography and artifacts, statues, artwork, photography, jewelry, glassware, vintage toys, carriages, vinyl records and record players, model ships, and more.
Located in the 22nd district of Vienna, METAMarkt is easily accessible. The area is well served by public transportation and can be reached in about 35 minutes by underground line U1 from the center of Vienna. Free parking is available in an open area nearby. This parking is usually reserved for vendors, but since parking on city streets is free on weekends, visitors are spoiled for choice.
