Why you should visit it
It’s a popular street market where any kind of object can be found in a selling tent, stalls or spread on the ground upon a cloth or blanket. Most of the objects are second hand and you can find furniture, junkyard, books, magazines, clothing, vinyl records, old black and white pictures, old cameras, tiles, antiques, frippery and so on.
Do not be afraid of haggle prices, it’s part of the game. If it's good weather it closes around 5 pm.
