If you do not want to worry about the weather ruining your treasure hunt, METAMarkt in Vienna, Austria, is the flea market for you. It is held in an old factory that is now used as an event space. Sometimes concerts take place here, sometimes yoga sessions, and every weekend a fantastic flea market sets up on the premises. From the outside, one may think this is nothing more than an abandoned building, but within its brick walls, a huge space offers four event halls, which is more than enough room for a bustling market.

For many years, the METAMarkt was held exclusively on Sundays. However, it has recently expanded its hours of operation and is now open on both Saturday and Sunday. Sundays still tend to be the busiest day, with nearly 100 vendors exhibiting. 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 – organizers simply encourage you to show up on the day. There is ample space throughout the building, so there is always room to set up another booth.

METAMarkt always attracts a range of different vendors and there are new and different stalls every weekend. Therefore, visitors can never be sure what kinds of things they may get the chance to buy here. Collectors are often pleasantly surprised at the unusual objects on display, which can include items of furniture, lighting fixtures, chinaware, movie memorabilia, collectibles, chandeliers, religious iconography and religious 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 via the U1 subway line from the center of Vienna. There is also free parking in an open area nearby. This parking is usually reserved for vendors, but since parking is free on city streets on weekends, visitors are spoiled for choice.

"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."
