Antique & Flea Market in Bomonti

Antique Flea Market in Bomonti, Istanbul
Every Sunday people gather in a normally rather ordinary parking lot in the Bomonti area to hold an antique & flea market. There are more than 200 workbenches put together offering whatever one can or can not imagine. From simple older pieces of any kind of household item, toys, cutlery, jewelleries, any kind of accessories, clothes, records, books, furnitures, decoration and so on to the very special and rare things one always wanted to have for the own collection.



Antique Market from Locals for Locals

The marketeers are locals, so is the vast majority of the visitors, at least for now. Fingers crossed it stays like that, as it provides a certain unique atmosphere of a real turkish market with a lot of chatting, discussing and of course negotiations. Nevertheless the economic purpose of the flea market does not seem the main reason for the people, they all seem to take it more as a social event, what creates a quite unique atmosphere, a cozy street neighbourhood one.

And before you leave, don't forget to get some typical turkish food, especially the Gözleme, freshly made by some older women who definitely know how to prepare delicious turkish food. Talking about food, on the very same spot is an organic farm market each saturday, for those who want to fill up with good quality local foods.
