Bürkliplatz Flea Market
8001 Zurich, Switzerland
NileGuide Expert tip:
Zurich's other Saturday flea market, the Kanzlei Flohmarkt, is open year-round. Located in Helvetiaplatz, it is off the beaten path. For more information, visit http://www.flohmarktkanzlei.ch/.
With over 400 vendors, the Bürkliplatz Flea Market is the biggest outdoor second-hand market in central Zurich. The market is open on Saturdays from May to October 6:00 AM to 4:00 PM. In order to get the best finds and deals, it is better to get there in the morning or early afternoon, since some vendors close up shop before 4 o'clock. Even though the flea market has a rather large selection of expensive antiques, it is possible to find other items like used clothing, books, toys, jewelry, and other household items. At the time of writing, a local milliner with a selection of vintage style hats had a regular booth at the market. For those who find lots of must-have items and need more cash, there is an ATM, Bankautomat
in German, in Paradeplatz.
